TRACES OF A DIARY DVD by André Príncipe and Marco Martins

10 EUR

Traces of a Diary is a cinematographic travel journal. Through a series of encounters with some of Japan’s most significant photographers, the directors reflect on the nature of creating images, telling stories and the diaristic process. Filming with two 16mm Krasnogorsk 3 wind-up cameras, Martins and Príncipe value the rawness of spontaneity and contingency over studied treatment. Both a diary and a reflection on the diaristic genre.
Traces of a Diary is a personal view on some of today’s most important photographers and the city they photograph.
With Daido Moriyama, Nobuyoshi Araki, Takuma Nakahira, Hiromix, Kaiji Syoin, Kohei Yoshiyuki and Gerry Badger.

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.
