In 2008 the artist began the series Dailies, based on images of small incidents of commonplace events that the artist took with his cell phone camera. Daily #27 depicts a number of unopened letters strewn before a white door. The Dailies is the first series for which Thomas Demand has used dye transfer printing. This method is known for the saturated colors, spatial depth and durability of the print, but also for its long production time. The process is closely associated with the work of William Eggleston who introduced its use in the mid 1970s into art photography.
