Martijn Berk writes on his website: â€œFalling from a height tells the story of my obsession for a 20-year-old boy. At first sight, the project might seem to be just a personal document, but at a second glance the project also raises questions that could be applicable to everyone: How far do you go in the quest for intimacy, how do you deal with the primal forces that are awakened? And just how does the power play work between two people?â€?
Falling from a height contains more than 4000 photos as contact sheets. www.martijnberk.com 2013, published by Idea Books www.ideabooks.nl

French photographer of Asian descent, Tiane Doan na Champassak (1973), based in Provence, was first recognized for his documentary work (Agence Vu) before exploring a more artistic approach. His photography is driven by a fascination for gender identity issues, revealing a decidedly aesthetic sensibility. For each body of work, print or publication, he seeks out the most appropriate techniques, materials and formats. www.champassak.com 2013, self-published

Olivier Cornil about this book: “I’m attracted by the overseas. I’m not a globetrotter, solitude is important to me in my daily life but it hate it when I’m travelling. Yet, whenever I have the chance of leaving, I do.” Olivier Cornil is the winner of the “Propositions d’artistes” van het l’Espace Photographique Contretype, a competition aimed to encourage creativity in Wallonia-Brussels. www.oliviercornil.be 2012, published by Editions Yellow Now
Here’s Johnny is a visual impression of Marlies’ life, seen through the lenses of many many disposable cameras. She always carries one with her and shoots whatever catches her eye. Sometimes it feels more like drawing than photographing, she says. www.marliesdeclerck.be 2013, self-published
JOHNNY’S HERE. MARLIES DE CLERCK

Peter Dekens about Touch: “Stijn is a young man (23). He was born blind and lives in a modest apartment somewhere in the city. This is the only place in the world where he can move so freely. The table, the chairs, the kitchen and the bed aren’t obstacles for him.“
Touch has been nominated at Fotobookfestival Kassel 2013. www.peterdekens.com 2012, self-published, edition of 500

THE HOUSE THAT BURNS EVERY DAY. MARINA GADONNEIX
In Coming home, any day now Melissa Mabesoone tries to grasp an indefinable place, a spot stuck between nostalgia and utopia. She calls the book ‘a tale about the imaginary’. It’s a journey through (re-)constructed, memorized, found places... www.melissamabesoone.blogspot.be 2013, self-published

IF I EXORCISE MY DEVILS MY ANGELS MAY LEAVE TOO. NEMANJA PANCIC
Martin Parr said it best: “The sleeper book of the year is Max Pinckers’ The Fourth Wall by this emerging young Belgian photographer. It is a very nice production, and this self-published book, on a charmingly cheap newsprint examines the idea of the Indian film world and the escapism of this, alongside a very good set of contemporary images. These two ideas are woven together with great skill and the book just seems to work very well.” www.maxpinckers.be 2012, 1000 copies, self-published
THE FOURTH WALL. MAX PINCKERS
Jörg Colberg -a pillar in the online photography community- reviewed One and a half meter: “The fact that the book is a relatively small production only enhances the effect of the work. The book trusts its viewers to understand the preciousness as coming from the photographs, not from a lavish production. If there is a good example for how a smaller book can be preferable, here is one.” www.peterpuklus.com 2012, published by Kehrer Verlag

Stefan Vanthuyne writes about his book: “In more ways than I could have imagined, becoming a father has been an overwhelming experience. With the beauty of parenthood came a vulnerability that I had never felt before. It left me with a heart full of doubts and a head full of questions.
Our first child was born in July 2007. In June 2009, his second birthday just around the corner, we travelled to the Ardèche region in France. The photographs in this book were made as a record of our days spent there. Away from an everyday context, far from our daily routines and patterns, things rise to the surface. Relationships become visible. The incredible bond between a mother and her son. (What is my part?) Almost tangible. Having returned to these photographs many times since then, it took me until now to realize this. To see and to recognize.” www.stefanvanthuyne.be 2013, published by Le Caillou Bleu http://collection.cailloubleu.com
REMEMBER THE WHITE HORSES. STEFAN VANTHUYNE
The Seventh Row of Seats [Preparing The Scene] is a collection of Waterschootâ€™s dystopian photographs. Dark, brooding, timeless, the images seduce slowly and offer no remorse. All exits are blocked, the viewer is trapped. www.peterwaterschoot.com 2012, self-published, edition of 100
THE SEVENTH ROW OF SEATS.
Suzanna about Place And: “Long story short is that I ended up in the Yukon because of the small batch of boreal forest up in Dolly Sods; the highest plateau east of the Mississippi River. I’m sitting in the Midnight Sun a whole 3,792 miles away from Davis, West Virginia. It’s the last song of karaoke that night. Everyone in the bar knows the words. I’m the only person there who’s ever been to West Virginia, but that doesn’t stop everyone from singing, “country roads, take me home, to the place I belong, West Virginia, mountain momma, take me home, country roads...” www.suzannazak.com Edition of 300 copies
