3. Leporello


Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me
The carriage held but just ourselves
And Immortality”
-Emily Dickinson-

In cooperation with artist Ellen Korth and Liesbeth Visser from Brown Cartonnages, I’ve made this beautiful handmade Leporello ‘Daughters of the Sun’. It gives an impression of my visits to Iraqi Kurdistan in 2017 and 2018 and my encounters with female Peshmerga fighters. In their hands they carry souvenirs of loved ones.

Hand-printed in my own dark room, hand-written and hand-bound with a cover of linen, it comes in a very limited edition of only 25 copies. Each leporello is unique in its choice of photos, in its sequence and its cut outs. Fold out it reaches a length of 6 meters.
