Cruel and Unusual catalog

Prison Photography project by Pete Brook

Catalog for the Cruel and Unusual exhibition at Noorderlicht Photogallery Groningen and Photoville NYC, curated by Pete Brook and Hester Keijser. Enveloped in the 34 pages newspaper is a 20 page pullout on Brooks project: Prison Photography on the Road (PPOTR). To magnify the conversion of this online project (blog) into a newspaper, I added printer’s marks to the design. Edition of 4,000 copies.

Elizabeth avedon: “(…) ‘must-have’ catalog for Cruel and Unusual, designed as a newspaper by Pierre Derks in an edition of 4,000. Along with visuals from the main exhibition, the catalog contains articles, interviews, ephemera and material from photographers Pete Brook encountered during his crowd-funded road-trip through the U.S (…), capturing the chaos, interactions and visual excitement he saw in photographers’ studios, contact-sheets and home-towns while on the road.”
