And if we think about it, most things go really well in black, turning a usually dull product into something truly stylish. This need of style also applies for photo books , so it is not surprising at all that more and more customers create their books with stylish and nostalgic-feeling black paper instead of the default white option. Although black paper or a black style might seem a bit pointless considering the vast selection of colorful photo book themes, if it is used properly it can add a new meaning to the book. Although photo albums were invented around the same time as photography was and even back then certain albums used regular white paper, the reason why photos were usually mounted on black paper is simpler than you think: the quality of photos. Additionally, all of them were black and white unless they had been colorized using special filters or via regular painting. Logically a black and white photo looks best if placed onto a black background , because it perfectly compensates the whiteness of the picture. Over the years photography went through many changes, but due to practicality and tradition the black pages remained, slowly becoming inseparable from photo albums.

I love the scratched-up blown-out surface, the nearly dead cockroach, a punk's shredded tights and a fly on a super-grainy window. It has stark, raw images with an aesthetic shared by Anders Peterson. The book is darkly seductive - even the paper surface is sexy to the touch - and has a dark narrative, which really drew me into its spell. An enormous dead fly sits opposite a slightly open door. The book has a sinister feel at times, the sequence of images often uncomfortable.
