For the first time, a book that captures as closely as possible the almost legendary figure of the Belgian filmmaker Boris Lehman.
Here, no film analysis, no reviews. It is rather an artist's book, a portrait of Boris by himself, which comes in the form of skilfully arranged fragments, mixing drawings, photos, poems and various documents.

“Defining the art of Boris Lehman is a complicated game. He is not, however, the only one of his kind. Unclassifiable, it has often been repeated, basically to get rid of it. Alternately limpid, strange, surreal, hermetic, fantastic. One could say: a jack-of-all-trades. He sailed between the ready-made and the Oulipo, circulated between art brut and arte povera. In any case, an art of accumulation and sedimentation.”
-Leopold Blum, Foreword.
With this good-natured air that we know him, this character, essentially a walker, decked out in caps, bags and cameras... we will find him whole, multiplied to infinity, as in a game of mirrors, in this book -sum, a veritable encyclopedia which collects, over more than half a century, a few scattered pieces of his life.
