Some(w)here is a book about a journey in the most concrete and abstract sense of the word. The images were made over a 10 year period and traverse as many countries – Norway, Tajikistan, Mexico, China, Namibia – interwoven to guide the reader through a collage of vivid, yet intangible moments. Delicately designed by the Dutch designer Sybren Kuiper, Some(w)here meanders through this language of place to evoke the perceptual, emotional experience of memory and dream.
