Jesper Just: Film works 2001 – 2007
Just’s film work is extremely photographic. By that we mean: every single frame could be a photograph. So when designing a book about his work – reduced to “photographic stills” due to the nature of the book medium – our priority was presenting Just’s work as close as possible to film, by conveying a sense of movement and narrative.
Apart from the five featured works, the book also contains a synchronoptical overview of Just’s oeuvre, showing direct visual quantitative relations in his films about durations, colours, moods and formats.
The grid imposed on and by the film sections is employed to differentiate the book’s three languages (English, Dutch and German).
