About the Book:

Edited by Russell Joslin, Black Forest features the photographs of over 50 contributing artists. Rooted in the concepts of the original Surrealists, these darkly beautiful and atmospheric sequences of images become a metaphor for the unconscious and the mysterious corners of the psyche. Suggesting loose, intuitive relationships between the works of contemporary artists, Joslin creates four visual narratives associated in tone, emotion, and formal structure, but allows room for his readers and viewers to render for themselves the hidden, connective layers of meaning. Complimenting this arcane collection is the strange and beautiful design of Jeff Louviere.


Black Forest was selected as one of photo-eye's "Best Books of 2014" and as one of Lenscratch's favorites of 2014.
