Master and Everyone' presents a sequence of photographs - mostly
portraits - reflecting on photography’s right distance to its subjects
and the master/ student relationship.
JFB: Somehow, I got the feeling that you were asking 'Where
are the masters? ... who are they? ... and what are they doing? "… and
this feeling that the answers will be found in unexpected places.
AP: Sure, that’s it. Till you stop looking, and you’re just doing your thing.

This is the first book of a triology.
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.For sales and inquiries, please email us at: email@example.com
