Episode 09: I have been following Roger Eberhard for some time. I reviewed his last book Standard published by Scheidegger & Spiess in 2016. This year, Roger has put out an incredibly eloquent and research-oriented publication with Edition Patrick Frey entitled Human Territoriality. Though I loved Eberhard’s work with Standard, I will have to admit that I have been blown away by the new work found in Human Territoriality. It feels like a maturation and it spans many countries and historical changes.

You see, instead of making work about current border issues as found so often with projects on photography, Roger has cunningly opted to consider the fluidity of various borders as they relate to history. The results are incredible, prescient and imbued with a deeper sense of research than previously found in his work. This is very serious material and what it hints at are larger questions about how geography is linked directly to the human psychology of place.

Beautifully designed, this will be on my shelf for the best of 2020. I also want to salute Roger for making a move towards sincerity in his work. Though he has been a relentless enthusiast of photography with his publishing house b.frank, this new body of work shows Roger taking his own work into higher domains of productivity and maturation. I really believe that this is the beginning of something for Roger and it has been a pleasure to watch the metamorphosis in such a short time period.

Roger’s work Human Territoriality will also go on show at Robert Morat’s gallery in May 2020. If in Berlin, I wholly suggest you go and see the exhibition and buy the book.
