“The basic idea is the entire coexistence of the city, the human society. The attention is focused on the metaphorical edges and borders of the complex society, in as many respects as possible: social, cultural, economic, religious, sexual, accommodating, mental, physical, scientific, recreational, sportive.
The series consists of neutral photos of spaces from which man seems to have temporarily withdrawn. What kind of people do normally enter into these settings, what role do they play and how do they relate to the rest of society.
Together these images give a rough sketch of the boundaries of a metropolitan network of coexistence.”
