0.98 seconds of Wellington Artists is a photo book by photographer Lennart Maschmeyer, portraying Wellington’s community of artists.
The aim was to show both the artistic as well as the everyday sides of artists. We achieved this by combining photographs of artists ‘at work’ (musicians on stage or painters in the studio), with portraits of them in their domestic surroundings. The juxtaposition of photos in this way also represents a narrative of the artistic process as a whole.
In addition to the photos, we used sober colours together with old and modern typefaces to evoke the feeling of a ‘family photo album’. This way, the photo book also conveys the very intimate personal these artists have with themselves.
