Publisher's presentation:

"Jens Liebchen's book System is a delight with a false bottom.

The pictures show a magical winter wonderland, a deserted, pristine snowy landscape with beautifully sprouted trees, that emerge, individually or in groups, filigree, snow-covered and delicate green on the branches from the soft white and gray surroundings. A natural spectacle of perfect beauty.

So it seems - but it is not that simple.

Jens Liebchen has taken the pictures in the outer part of the Imperial Palace Garden in central Tokyo. Here and there in the dense snowstorm we see cars bowl along in the background and isolated shadowy towering skyscraper silhouettes, that darken the sky. And for the trees, nature has supplied only the material. Placement, growth, size and shape are defined by people and planned down to the smallest detail. With his photographs Jens Liebchen, who lived in Tokyo for three years, reflects firm principles of the Japanese social system.

Nevertheless, the series is intriguing because of its great beauty, and the same goes for the book itself. Excellently designed by Helge Schlaghecke, printed in the finest quality and manufactured as clothbound hardcover with embossed title and tipped in image on the back the book is a bibliophilic gem."

    The images in this book are quite wild !The artist takes us in the life of a group of young Russians, whose days and nights revolve around alcohol, acting nonsense and sex, adrift in some apparently derelict project buildings. They have fun and go wild at night under the influence, and the days just seem to linger in the expectation of what the next night...
