Pineapple Road Press is an independent publishing collective founded in 2021. We - Ben Maier, Emily Josephine Rooney, Emma Grima and Lina Selg - are four photography students at the Royal Academy of Arts, NL. We share the urge to express ourselves and continue conversations through the juxtaposition of photographs.
Our first publication „Under Her Gaze We Feel Golden“ (June 2021) will recontextualize photographs of students from different European universities, narrating a story of collective summer longings and escapes.

This is our love experiment; whether this will be the origin of an ongoing collaboration or a fleeting romance, we shall see.

Out now


Under her gaze we feel golden


She greets us with her glorious persistence. She surrounds us with her warm embrace. In summer, the sun is watching over us as we dance through life. She is our medicine from the sickness of our daily routine. Leaving the toxic spectacle of society in the dark, we are awakened to a fresh state of consciousness. Allowing us, at last, to embrace the rejuvenation of our being. 

We asked ourselves when this transformation happens. It is when we celebrate endless days together. When we wander aimlessly within unfamiliar mountains. When we feel the tingly sensation of her light on our skin.

Irregular, but highly exciting updates from Pineapple Road press???
