The personal and theory merge in Appu Jasu’s book, which combines photographic art, literature, and philosophy: both are placed under the same set of rules. The book follows the flow of thoughts backwards towards the the smallest connection between two dots. It thus approaches the starting point of everything, which reappears in different shapes and in different places. The text of The Poetics of a Line is dense and the photographs are multidimensional.
The Poetics of a Line is a Finnish Photobook Award 2018 finalist.
