Publisher's presentation:

"People behind the windows of public buses — at the end of a working day in the centre of Paris, they wait for the bus to bring them back to the banlieue. They seem introspective, engrossed in thought, their gaze directed towards an inner landscape.

The camera’s view of the subjects it portrays is frequently refracted by mirrorings and iridescent light reflections. As a counterpoint to these photographs are the ephemeral traces of human presence; scratches scored into the glass, fingerprints, and other deposits left on the bus windows. In the pictures they come across as abstract gestures of the light, cloud formations, or clusters of stars.

It is as if the viewer is looking into an incubator in which the matrix of human existence is assembling itself from tiny particles."

The book has been produced with the generous support of the "Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia".

  • Publisher's presentation: "Since the 1979 revolution, Iran has developed its own image culture, with public space serving primarily as a transit zone and a screen where state-sanctioned religious ideology is projected. Pride of place is given to memorials to the first Gulf war (the Iran-Iraq War of 1980–88), which is part of the founding myth of the...
