Coffee & Photo Books: Vivian Maier - featured photobook June 2014

Forloren Espresso is about good coffee, but I am also aiming to create a small space in the inner city of Copenhagen where you can relax and have a break.

If you drink your coffee in the shop and if you are interested in a little help to let your mind wander; you can browse through some of the photographic art books I have put on the shelves.

Every month I will feature a photographer/book worthy of an extra look, and for July I have chosen  3 books of Vivian Maier's work.
Vivian Maier, Street Photographer, 2011
Vivan Maier, Out of the Shadow, 2012
Vivan Maier, Self-Portraits, 2013
The story of Vivian Maier is emotionally engaging on many levels, but more importantly; she produced great photographs. She would likely have received recognition in her own time; had she only wanted to share her amazing photographs when she was alive. Apparently she didn't, and it was a lucky accident for art lovers that led to the discovery of the photographs as explained in the link above.

Photo Books & Coffee

I love looking in photo books, especially while drinking good coffee, so I have placed several books from my collection for you to enjoy in the shop - please be gentle with them :)

(none of the books are for sale)
