(Artist Book, 124 pages, full size images, 11x13 inch/28x33 cm) ARCHIVE MIRROR is based on anonymous and abandoned b/w negatives from the Cold War Era discovered 2010 by Burkhard von Harder in Western Ukraine. The book experiments with the notion of the negative; an idea carried further by mirroring each inversed image. Another intention is to transcend photography by suggesting space while creating the sense of a closed society trapped in itself.
The British six month periodical PHOTOWORKS dedicated the cover story of its spring/summer issue 2012 (#18) to ARCHIVE MIRROR.
Burkhard von Harder is a former member of the ABC Artists' Books Cooperative
