At his workspace in the centre of Amsterdam, when the afternoon sun is just right, Thomas Manneke captures still lifes and portraits of his daughter, Laurie, using an 8×10 inch plate camera. Most photographs in this book were made in collaboration with his daughter. The objects in the book are made especially to photograph them. Sometimes they are inspired by found objects, like a small grey stone with whimsical white lines or by a web created by caterpillars. Some objects were inspired by artworks from the past like the drawings on glass were by Josef Albers and the folded sculptures of thick paper, or dynamic cut-outs of cardboard were inspired by photographs of Francis Bruguiere. The book shows the fun of creating things together while getting inspired by the world around us.
