Mårten Lange - Another Language



—01-03. Embossed hardcover, 96 pages, and 59 tritone plates.


I discovered this book quite recently, when working on a forthcoming feature for the magazine. Having taken notes regarding its author it didn't take too long for me to track down more information courtesy of the book's publisher MACK: "The aesthetics of science, nature and the materiality of things are recurring themes in Mårten Lange’s work and in Another Language, his first major publication, Lange delves even deeper with this fascination for the natural world. Combining images of flora, fauna and natural phenomena in an intimate and beautifully crafted book, Lange teases out a subtle narrative - a meteor crashes, a landmass is visible and a distant planet occupies the final page - but the book is more akin to the workings of a scientist collecting specimens."
