Heikki Kaski: Tranquillity
During Unseen 2013 in Amsterdam, this photo book was declared the winner of the annual elections for the Unseen Dummy Award.
Photographer Heikki Kaski (Finland) crawled into the skin of the small town Tranquillity, 800 inhabitants, in the desert-like San Joaquin Valley, California. The images show a strange, introverted world in a stiflingly hot desert; the heat is almost palpable in this book.
The design Heikki Kaski – with help from Hans Gremmen – makes it a must have for lovers of special photo books.
