His second book after the critically acclaimed “Invisible City”
Schles approaches the omnipresence of social structures, which – pushed by the flood of media images – are undergoing permanent, almost frantic change. He sends his viewers onto city streets and playgrounds, into pubs and bars, puts them into a police helicopter and takes them to death row, hospital rooms and police interventions. There is no story, only a breathless sequence of pictures condensed into thematic clusters.
