Jan Kempenaers - I'm Not Tailgating, I'm Drafting


This special edition from celebrated Belgian photographer Jan Kempenaers further prefaces his gradual shift from visual language of the picturesque, articulated in his previous books for Roma Publications: Spomenik, The Picturesque and Dun Briste, Downpatrick Head. Shot on a handheld, medium format camera during a road trip through California, I'm Not Tailgating, I'm Drafting is a significant and poetic step for Kempenaers. This limited edition concertina – which folds out into a single sheet and features a signed, hand-numbered C-Type print – captures the fragments, formal and textural details that marked Kempenaers travels and hints towards his growing interest in abstraction. A genuine collectors edition, this stunning piece of publishing arrives courtesy of Roma (Amsterdam) and Idea Books (Amsterdam).

32 pages, 17 x 23 cm, paperback, Roma Publications (Amsterdam).
