Alexander Binder — Kristall ohne Liebe
Alexander Binder - Kristall ohne Liebe - Tangerine Press
  • Two editions: 200 numbered & 6 lettered copies

Kristall ohne Liebe (literally translated “Crystal without Love”) is a visual journey into a mystic parallel world. Seen through self-built lenses, prisms and crystals, the photo series captures a psychedelic universe full of contrasts: colourful images, black and white photography, life, death, beauty and ugliness collide.

Drawing influences from Symbolist painters like Odilon Redon to the rainbow aesthetics of the Hippie culture and the German Krautrock movement, these images were photographed over a period of more than 5 years in Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and Germany.

"It is thus, my most coveted photography book of the year in its qualification as unspeakable language and the glory of the potentially transcendental image."
— Brad Feuerhelm, American Suburb X

"Alexander Binder is a wizard creator of imaginary worlds."
— Jon Feinstein, Humble Arts Foundation

"Kristall ohne Liebe is a well articulated and intriguing example of Binder at his visionary best, his craft more refined than ever and his ability to drift between the softest daydream and the wickedest omen all the more appreciated."
