New product

Presentation by Roma Publications :    

"New series of photographs by Geert Goiris, addressing the topic of our contemporary oil culture. Commissioned by Rubis Mécénat cultural fund, Goiris was given permission to the Rubis Terminal sites in Rouen and other sites in Europe.

He tackles the subject from the outside, limiting himself to that particular moment when oil is seemingly without drama. This is not about the technical feat of extracting the oil from the earth, nor about the economic, social and/or geopolitical effects generated by its existence. Rather it is about the in-between stations, the moments when oil is only potentially active."

Limited edition with a signed print (23.5 x 30 cm).

Text by Steven Humblet in English and French in a separate tossed-in 8-page booklet.

68 + 8 pages - Softcover
