Lukas K Stiller: Paradox.Paradise
For over 2 years, Lukas K Stiller has been documenting first-hand the secret actions of Mr.Paradox.Paradise in Berlin through a close companionship with the artist, magnifying secretive actions that would fall into oblivion without the necessary documentation but it's also much more than this: « Paradox.Paradise » depicts a lonely chivalric quest through a fantomatic Berlin, a melancholic voyage through a city that looks void of his inhabitants, but where the architecture is sublimated. As such, the photographic series is as much a documentary account on Paradox as a rare-of-a-kind photobook about Berlin, a nocturnal ballade through the Haupstadt, its architecture and unseen before viewpoints, where black & dark yellow hues give the city its eerie coloration.
Urban Spree Books is releasing "Paradox.Paradise" in a regular edition as well as a Special Collector Edition of 150 books, housed in an embossed slipcase, with a signed and numbered photograph. This Special Edition is made of 3 Editions of 50 signed and numbered books signed by both artists and includes a highly collectible photograph (choice of 3 / each edition numbered x/50).
The Special Editions of the book will be available at Urban Spree exclusively on Friday, July 8, 2022 between 18:00 and 20:00, before going online on our webstore at 20:00.
