Photographs by Mårten Lange
Published by Farewell Books
6" X 8.75"
38 pages, black and white, laser printed and perfect bound

Last May I described Mårten Lange's photos of tree branches as, "...reminiscent of a tangle of amplifier cords–nature transformed into man-made disarray... " when I reviewed his first book, Woodland. Now comes Lange's second book, Machina, which has the exact opposite effect: cords, knobs, and pressure gauges transformed into wilderness. The high contrast black and white photography comes in close and abstracts the machines which are as entangled and chaotic as nature, and like the trees and foliage of Woodland, seem to be consuming their surroundings.
