In Denmark Nephews was predicted “…a photo book classic.” by the acclaimed newspaper Weekend Avisen.
About the Book: Nephews has been more than 10 years in the making and is the result of a collaboration between the artist Fryd Frydendahl and the two young boys her sister left behind upon passing. What started as a need to fill her own void has turned into a communication across geographic and emotional barriers’ while turning into a “document of time and a family story about growing up and doing it together”. In collaborating, the three of them have renegotiated a tragedy that could have very easily set them all adrift. They chose each other, instead. The images speak for themselves, and the work is overwhelmingly generous.
The book is printed in an edition of 500 Hardcover. 184 pages Dimensions: 26 x 34 cm/ 10.2 x 13.4" Graphic design by Jacob Birch/ Spine Studio Texts by Fryd Frydendahl, Allen Frame and Hans Otto Jørgensen
