WORLDRECORDS collects highlights from the photo series "worldrecords" where Schafer photographs the great albums of music history on classic turntables, presented on oversized prints. The large format allows all the details and nuances of the vinyl and record players to shine. Schafer's work is a tribute to the art of the analogue and a celebration of some of pop's finest music. The photographs are accompanied by quotes from the musicians covered. Albums featured include David Bowie's The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders of Mars, Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures and The Clash's London Calling. An interview with the artist by Michael Bracewell accompanies the book as well as a foreword by Peter Hook, of Joy Division and New Order fame.The book will be published to coincide with an exhibition of Schafer's work at HENI Gallery, Soho.
