Light of Other Days
Typically experimenting with the photographic process, Onorato and Krebs created these images by placing a sheet of photo-sensitive paper directly in front of an analogue camera, resulting in an instant image. Featuring a selection of 44 monochrome photographs of rather ambiguous objects, it includes a short story titled Eighteenth Voyage from Stanislaw Lem's Memoir's of a Space Traveller (1982). Beautifully designed and published by Kodoji Press.

Lightning Tree
Lightning Tree is published on the occasion of the exhibition The One-Eyed Thief: Taiyo Onorato & Nico Krebs at the Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati, September 12, 2014 - February 22, 2015, as part of the FOTOFOCUS Biennial 2014, Cincinnati.

The Great Unreal
During a space of three years, Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs traveled several months through the United States, working ‘on the road’ on the photo series The Great Unreal. The photographic work deals with reality and the fabrication of reality. The geography of America serves as both setting and fertile ground for the examination. Mysticism and demystification are important aspects in this process, as is working with a rich inventory of visual icons that can be continually deconstructed and manipulated. The working method of both photographers is based on interventions prescribed mostly by happenstance and change. Through repetition and associative placement, the sometimes crude, sometimes subtle interventions begin to link to one another, establishing an exciting transformation of reality that only hesitatingly reveals itself to the viewer.
Together with book designers Megi Zumstein and Claudio Barandun, what emerged is an unmitigated picture book that makes a visual journey possible without any instructions. It comprises narrative image sequences that approximate the curiosity and restlessness of being on the move and, at the same time, depict associative connections with the American landscape.
