This book is a six-folio visual album. Made of fragmented images, these micro-narratives feature various themes, such as figurative art in modern architecture photography; the representation of police violence in Hollywood crime movies; dummy design in the 1950â€™s store windows; and architect-targeted advertisements for building materials in nuclear plants. Operating through large zoom-ins within the very pattern of the images, Izet Sheshivari gets the reader physically closer to the document, leading to a pictorial exploration of themes â€“ a romantic kind of aesthetics based on the use of an old photocopier.
