I THOUGHT YOU KNEW WHERE ALL OF THE ELEPHANTS LIE DOWN by André Príncipe

Out of stock

I Thought You Knew Where All Of The Elephants Lie Down continues André Príncipe's exploration of photography as a way of knowing reality.

The book has a strong narrative feeling, with two distinctive parts; a very precise sequence of images of girls and animals is followed by a hazy, dreamlike worldview.

An existentialist travelogue that defies the idea that there are pots of gold at the end of the rainbow.

The book's title refers to Leonard Cohen song.
This is the second book of a triology including two other titles: Master and Everyone and O Perfume do Boi.
These books were designed like classical music scores.

Pierre von Kleist Editions is an artist run publisher specialized in photo books. We are committed to the production of new, innovative photo books and we believe the photo book to be a medium capable of expressing complex, abstract, contemporary issues and to reach a wide audience.

We believe that in a multicultural, globalized world the photo book is one of the privileged mediums. The language of sequential images is, perhaps, today’s most international language, understood by the large majority of the world population. Photo books don’t need translation, they need world distribution. Internet provides an efficient, accessible way for books to reach global audiences.

At PVKe we aim to produce books that transcend the documentary quality that is usually associated with the photography medium. We are interested in artistic achievements and in the specific qualities that the medium offers. We want to make books that tell stories and deal with the contemporary way of living.

The photo book is a complex art form that combines photography, graphic design, cinema, literature, etc. Our goal is to push the limits and conventions of the photo book, contributing to establish it as a respected, mature medium.


Pierre von Kleist editions is based in Lisboa, Portugal and is run by André Príncipe and José Pedro Cortes.
