Verloren is a photo series that captures the disappearing tradition and personal touch of inscribing books. These earnest writings leave traces of relationships that happened and have now passed. The found inscription opens up your imagination about the dedicator and the receiver, like finding someone’s secret note. By analyzing handwriting you can also tell a lot about the wordsmith, from the tiny decorative cursive slanting right reveals the shyness of a young woman in love or the written precision of sage words of a poetic inscriber on a solemn book. There is also a tension between the book title and what is inscribed; therefore the title of each image is the book title, Beau Ideal, The Gates of the Forest, Intra Muras etc. The images show the wear and tear of time and act like a silent memorial to a moment in two people’s lives that is now over. These books meant something to people at one time, to gift them, to write a personal message or advice, to perhaps cherish and now have been discarded.
