You breathe from a garden in your neck by Judith Jockel

This is a book which uses photography to get a grip on something which is lost. In 2011 Judith’s best friend Mieke died; they had shared a friendship and a studio with a garden in Amsterdam Oost. After her death, Judith uses Mieke’s analogue Cambo 8 x 10-inch camera to photograph every flower in their shared garden. The camera has a technical malfunction, but Mieke kept using it. The result is a collection of photographs that show the flowers, but the camera is also present because of light flares on the negative.
