art book cologne, founded by Bernd Detsch in 1997, is a wholesale company and specializes in buying and selling high quality publications in art, art theory, architecture, design, photography, illustrated cultural history and all related subjects internationally. Our team includes specialists in art, culture, music, book trade and media but in spite of our diversity we have one common ground: the enthusiasm for unique art books.
We purchase remaining stocks from museums, publishers and art institutions. We sell these remainders to bookstores, museum shops, and art dealers all over the world.

"Two Rivers" presents Joachim Brohm's photo series "Ruhr"(1980 to 1983) alongside "Sleeping by the Mississippi" (2000 to 2004) by Alec Soth.
Other work groups on view in the catalogue, such as "Ohio", "Dessau Files" and "Culatra" by Joachim Brohm, and "Songbook" and "Niagara" by Alec Soth, represent fictitious places and allow for a broader view of the oeuvres of the two photographers. Also featured in the book is Brohm's portrait series "Flash Ohio" which will be published for the first time exactly 35 years after its creation and occupies a special position in his work.
