Astres Noirs is “a moonlight dance between Katrin Koenning and Sarker Protick. The creative control of the craft of bookmaking is exemplary here,” says David Campany. The use of a single hit of silver ink on toothy black paper renders the photographs inseparable from their appearance on the page and exemplifies a savvy approach to translating images shot on mobile phones to a sumptuous, physical form. David Campany also applauds the book as “a joyous lesson in the art of editing and sequencing, the rhythms and repetitions building to a whole that is far more than the sum of its exquisite parts.”
