Kafka - Amerika/Kafka - Metamorphosis & Other Stories/The Great Wall of China/The Castle/The Trial

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Book Design / Book Front Covers / 2008

This range of Kafka book covers features portraits that are representative of the disorientation and anxiety the central protagonists in Kafka’s writing generally experience. In addition to the bizarre, dreamlike masks that strip away the characters’ personality and capacity to communicate, the fact that the individuals seem to be in a sitting position reinforces a sense of being tied, trapped or otherwise imprisoned. The photos are imbued with psychological menace, like a glimpse into the interrogation rooms of some secret organisation or shadow government. The individuals appear to be guilty of something, though we are given no indication as to exactly what.
