Jon Cuadros


Lichtquellen was published in June 2017 by Pogobooks, the German independent publishing house specializing in limited edition art books.

The debut photo book by Cuadros chronicles his first winter in Berlin in a fever dream sequence of shadowy figures and nightscapes, during a time the photographer was isolated and suffering severe depression.

In this work Berlin is transfigured into a ghost town where monuments, cracked eggs, and other scattered vestiges of life are suspended in the grainy abyss of the city's notorious winter tristesse. The book paces between desperation and hope like someone doggedly finding their way through the dark.

Lichtquellen is available for purchase via Pogo Books and in specialty shops in Berlin, London, Tokyo, and Toronto. The book has been featured at New York Art Book Fair, Miss Read, Rencontres d'Arles, LA Art Book Fair, PhotoIreland, and more.
