Nicolas Kern captures the raw spirit of a modeling generation at the dawn of their career using photography technology at the dusk of its lifespan.   In the span of only four days, Nicolas shot almost 60 models using a Sinar 4X5 camera with discontinued Fuji FP stock.   Nicolas' choice of printing and binding methods parallels the challenges of large format instant photography:  the book is printed on french fold paper which was hand bound in traditional Japanese style.

The resulting work is a a minimalist celebration of technologies that are true Zeitgeister -- spirits of past preserved -- while the spirits of the future pass the torch.
