DANIEL SANNWALD BOOK


Within a short period of time, German-born photographer Daniel Sannwald has emerged as one of the unique voices in contemporary photography. Working within the realm of fashion photography, without being restricted by its conventions, his images seek to merge fashion and art that result in surreal dreamscapes that are always memorable and thought-provoking. Having compelted his studies at the Royal Academy in Antwerp, Sannwald went onto to contribute for i-D, Vogue Hommes Japan, V, Qvest and of course Dazed (his shoot for Fashion's New Optimism can be seen here). Over a ten year period, Sannwald has accumulated images that he has now reinterpreted into a book published by Heroes with texts written by Cecilia Dean, Ashley Heath and Sannwald himself. It investigates his interest in digital collaging as well as a more traditional retrospective. With influences and loves, cited in this interview with friend and Dazed contributor Kasia Bobula as wide ranging as Nelly and Roald Dahl, you're sure to be in for a trip with this coffee table tome.
