The book project Due to Lack of Interest Tomorrow Has Been Cancelled deals with the universal fear of dying and with our desire to understand and bridge the gap between ourselves and the unknown. We try to fill this potentially dangerous conceptual void with — amongst several other things — storytelling, science, art and religion. Peper uses some of these to try to comprehend and make visible something fictional and immaterial.
The publication consists of around hundred photographs, written observations, some artworks by outsider artists and found antique real photo postcards, as well as quite a long short story by musician Jim White. The graphic design is modernistic and understated, to complement the Romantic, subjective and gritty photography.
The book was presented at the Unseen Photography Fair in Amsterdam and has been co-funded by the Mondriaan Fund.
