No Thing—Ness
by Joost Termeer

Book design for photographer and artist Joost Termeer
Including seperate artwork and custom binding



No Thing-ness is a photobook by artist and photographer Joost Termeer. It revolves around the gaze. Objects or situations become something when they’re looked at or when they are captured by a camera. Through photographs objects are no longer nothing. HouseTMM translated this idea into a photobook that does not combine the images with a layer of graphic design, but rather let the photography do the talking.

The photographs are displayed in their full form. No titles or names. No grids or unusual print techniques. Just the photographic edit in it’s full glory. The book is divided into two sections. The second of which displaying the photo’s as an archive or index, displaying their names and time of creation. This makes the book not only show a photographic project, but also the process that the photographer went through to create these works.
