In Kattegatt Sea, equal distance from Sweden and Denmark, the Danish island Anholt is situated. That is where photographer Jäger Arén, with an eye for hidden things and everyday situations, has been strolling in the surroundings where since childhood he has resided in summertime. The book is made in memory of the photographer's brother, Philip Arén (1967-2000). In an essay the Danish poet and writer Vagn Lundbye looks on the island and its inhabitants from a historical perspective. 1416? Well, it's the number on a nautical chart that shows Anholt. This is Jäger Arén's first book. 116 color images • Essay by Vagn Lundbye • Afterword by Liselotte Arentz Sørensen and Jäger Arén • Text translation: Nina Lautrup-Larsen, Linda Schenk, Ann-Marie Seeberg • Editor: Gösta Flemming • Design: Patrick Waters • Hard cover with dust jacket • 250 x 260 mm • 168 pages • English/Swedish/Danish • 2004
