RRB Photobooks to publish Danish photographer 'Dublin' by Krass Clement
Dublin, 1991 copyright Krass Clement.

LONDON.- In 1991, Danish photographer Krass Clement, shot his acclaimed photobook ‘Drum’, legendary for being created in on just one evening on three rolls of film. At this time Clement was on a three month on a residency at Tyrone Gurhie Centre in Annaghmakerrig, Ireland. Whilst on this residency, Clement also photographed the city of Dublin during three short visits. The resulting photographs, contemporary to ‘Drum’, are published in this new book for the first time, over 25 years since their creation.

Dublin’ follows the journey of a flaneur through the Irish city beginning in the deserted streets on the outskirts in the dark before dawn. Shot at angles, furtive glimpses into doorways and down urban streets, give the impression of walking at pace and staying in the shadows. The sense of movement in ‘Dublin’ is accentuated by the figures on the street who are in a perpetual state of transit - on foot, on the bus, or in a brief moment of respite before moving on again. Shot in black and white, these photographs appear to show a city not rooted in the late 20th century, but rather a Dublin out of time, monochromatic in both rain and sun. A visual stream of consciousness on a stroll through the city, Clement’s work marries the traditions of Scandinavian melancholy and the 'flaneur' tradition from the Parisian school.

Clement’s preferred medium is the photo book, using sequencing to build an imaginary and intangible narrative frame by frame. His best-known book ‘Drum’, captured the local residents of a pub in the small village of Drum with a population of less than 200. The book revolves around a hunched old man who sits alone with his drink, his solitary state accentuated by the figures rotating around him. The protagonist of ‘Dublin’ is the flaneur on foot, viewing the city as both alien and familiar.

The publication of ‘Dublin’ will coincide with an exhibition of work by Krass Clement at The Gallery of Photography, Ireland in Dublin from 14 November 2017 – 14 January 2018.

Krass Clement was born Copenhagen in 1946 and is a self-taught photographer. He graduated as a film director from the Danish Film School in 1973, and when it became evident that his future was not to be in film he returned to the photography he had practiced since his youth. He published his first photobook, Skygger af øjeblikke (Shadows of the Moment) in 1978 and since then has published more than 20 further titles. Clement’s work has been the subject of over 20 solo exhibitions across Europe, is held by museum collections including Bibliotek Nationale, Paris, Museum of Modern Art, New York amongst others.
