SKYLINES is the first publication by Andrew Pepper available on the iBook store and is currently being distributed internationally in 51 countries.

In the summer of 2006 Pepper began taking photographs of Skylines, the junction between objects and the sky around them.

The first was a spontaneous image taken from a garden in LA, looking back toward the house.  Since then images have been collected in the United States, Germany and the UK.

The basis for taking each photograph has remained constant:  The sky must be blue and there should be an apparent line between the object and the sky.

This publication not only showcases the first series of SKYLINE images, taken between 2006 - 2007, but also includes specially produced drawings (made during 2014) based on the images, as well as an animated view produced from slowly fading, overlapping, examples of a significant SKYLINE in Germany. 



Skylines - Andrew Pepper

An earlier version of this ebook was produced and published on the online Issuu platform as an experiment in ways of displaying and distributing some of the background visual research Andrew Pepper had been undertaking.  It attracted a large number of visitors and was distributed internationally.  In the meantime, Apple's iBooks platform was developed with the opportunity to include rich media (animations, 3-D models, video etc) within ebooks.

In revisiting the original SKYLINES publication it seems an ideal opportunity to redesign the publication and take advantage of these media possibilities.  Original digital drawings have been produced in this 2014 edition, based on one of the SKYLINE images taken in Deizisau, Germany, during 2007.  Alongside these 'sketches' is an animated sequence combining several views of the same SKYLINE, to explore slowly overlapping images and the 'space' between two visual 'states'.

Further volumes of SKYLINE images are in production.
