“Six” is a book exploring the idea of mess. A photography-based book meant to slow the user down, and to really read images rather than simply skimming through them. Each image is initially shown intact, then in the following pages broken down into a grid made up of six sections, allowing the user to “re-read” each image closer up.


The book is split up into four sections, each based on around a central image. Each image is a space that is generally quite messy, containing a lot of “things” within it. As each section progresses, it shows spreads of close ups of the image based on the grid, along with a few images at the end taken of “things” within the original image, taken out of the original images and rearranged for a separate context.
