Together with the landscape-architect Stefan Vidts, Stijn Cole went on a journey from the flat isle of Texel (NL) to the ancient woods of Bialowieza (Pl). Two extremes in the European landscape. The book “2 steps aside” tells the story of that trip and shows 6 pencil-drawings. As the base for these drawings, Cole took a picture at Branitz, a landscape-park in the geographical and conceptual middle of the traject, moved two steps aside and took a second picture of the same subject. The book has a “Concertina” format so the original movement of 180cm is kept.
