Book design for Norwegian artist Morten Torgersrud 'Lumps'. The project consists of a series of photographs depicting clods of mud dug out of the landscape of The High North, the northern regionof Norway bordering the arctic region and Russia.
The lumps appear as abstract sculptures — studies
in form and materiality. Yet simultaneously are images of specific places. Thus opposing prevailing methods of dealing with landscape in photography.
The design of the book simply presents the images and accompanying text with as little baggage as possible, via devising a simple grid based on the golden ratio in which to arrange images and text, thus emphasizing the theme of decontextualization.
