AF/OI-01 is the first book of the ongoing series Outlooks Insights of the berlin based photographer Amos Fricke. It contains an excerpt of 200 black and white photographs of this series, taken with his Yashica during the last two years at various places all over europe.
The inherent principle of the snapshot is the randomness of the shoot. So he decided to go a step further: he randomized the order of the pictures throughout the book. Thus each book of this edition contains the same 200 images, but with a randomized and hence different order in every copy.
The images are generated by life and attention. It is neither a search nor a finding. It is a gainful meeting at the same level. Happenings and situations, objects and items, details and extracts, surfaces and materials, arrangements and settings, structures and influences, glamour and scum, the spectactular and the trivial, needs and satisfactions. Outlooks Insights is a companion. A story about life. Personal and public. – Amos Fricke

Every book features a different, random sort order of photographs to do justice to the term of fortuitousness in the approach of snapshot photography on another level.
