Acting as a global platform for dynamic new creatives, London’s favourite fashion store b store has collaborated with photographic journal Kilimanjaro to bring you b book: White and Black with the work of up and coming photographer Philippe Gerlach.
„GOSIA“ is dealing with a subject as personal as possible. It’s an everday life portrait of my former love and MalgorzataSzandala, and i’ve been working on the series, since the time we’ve met in Gliwice, Poland, three years ago. Gosia is an academic artist, andin 2004 lived between Vienna and Gliwice, Polen. Since 2005 she’s staying in Gliwice, Poland full time. It was important for me to find a way having her around also in the times when she wasn’t there, which for me was the working on her pictures later, creating something that would fill the space she left. And i also took the pictures, to not lose the ability to see Gosia as a passerby, a roommate, a friend and a lover at the same time.In spring 2006 i created a little fanzine, containing pictures of her, which i gave around as a free gift and to get her known in my circles. This led to a collaboration with the B Store and Klimanjaro Magazine which resulted in the production of b Book.
