In “I walked into a cave and up to Paradajs” Peter Granser grapples with his father’s death. He created this very personal work immediately thereafter, in October 2016, in the woods and a cave on Mount Paradajs in Slovakia.

The photographs evoke the impermanence of all things in the inexorable cycle of nature, showing how, despite the darkness, the world around us can still be a source of beauty and hope.

The distinctiveness of the book’s design stands out at first sight: completely unprotected from the outside, the cover material was inserted in the center of the book, providing a stability from inside. Dividing the narration in a “before” and “after,” this combines Robert Lax poem with the character of Gransers work.
