Photo Essay – NYC Special
Jochen Sand is a German photographer who works for international clients since 1995. In September 2015, he accompanied the Slanted team on their way to New York to meet the young generation of designers, typographers and artists which witness and create the change of a megacity.
Many years ago Jochen Sand came to New York City as a young photographer already. Over there he discovered that hanging out on the roofs of Hell’s Kitchen shooting fashion or ending up celebrating Mickey Rourke’s birthday, was much more glamorous than giving a sexy light to doorhandles and kitchen cupboards.
New York is the city of superlatives – this inspiration and the collected experiences are very important to Jochen Sand’s work. For Slanted, he caught the pulse of the city, the breath of the streets, and the life of those who live and survive in NYC.

83M80 original letterpress bookmark
83M80 is an exploration of the influence of technology on visual communication, from the days of the letterpress to the Internet era. Focusing on errors and misconceptions, 83M80 preserves these aesthetic cues by representing them in a movable typeface. These typefaces were casted as a letterpress alphabet with which posters have been designed and printed. 100 limited and signed bookmarks are part of the Special Edition NYC now.
You can learn more about the story of the project in the Slanted Magazine #26 – New York on page 208–215.
