Following the phenomenal success of Gerry Johansson’s 2011 publication Pontiac, we are pleased to publish the long-awaited Deutschland which completes an eighteen-year series of books for which Johansson travelled through America, Sweden, Germany and Mongolia.

Deutschland is a visual encyclopedia, a catalogue of the rural and urban landscapes of Germany arranged in alphabetical order. In carefully structured greyscale images, Johansson sensitively explores German history through its landscape, picking out the industrial scenes, industrial buildings, residential roads and shop fronts. His quiet photographs are carefully constructed, grid patterns recur constantly and each frame is packed with information.
