The book contains 63 colour plates from various series and projects with accompanying text contributions from Catherine Toriano (V&A), Sarah Allen (Tate Modern), Hinde Haest (Foam), Søren Gosvig Olesen (Univ. of Copenhagen), Mads Damsbo (Brandts), Leonard Koren (author of Wabi-Sabi: for Artists, Designers, Poets and Philosophers, 1994 and Wabi-Sabi: Further Thoughts, 2015).

Adam Jeppesen (Denmark, lives in Argentina) creates work that addresses the materiality and transience of the photograph as an object. Much of Jeppesen's work is the result of a solitary 487-day journey from the North Pole to Antarctica in 2009 called The Flatlands Camp Project. The journey has left visible traces and blemishes on the photographs as he carried his film and camera equipment with him on the road, where the negatives picked up grit and dust along the way. Jeppesen celebrates these imperfect elements rather than tries to hide them. Coincidence, damage and imperfection are essential elements in his work. At a time when the image has become infinitely perfectible and reproducible, Jeppesen experiments with the photograph as a unique object that is subject to the forces of change and decay.
