Many, many years ago I fell in love with the city where all the photographs in this slim, magazine-style bookwork have been taken. In comparison with the 2014 edition, also self-published, there have been a few changes concerning the choice of photographs but not the design, which is all colour, no text, no white. The name of the city in the former title has gone to remove it one last step further away from any kind of travel guide association. This is about seeing, not travelling. If you want to look for clues as to which city it is, enjoy the game.

In my photography I often start with a mystery, a detail that appears huge because in extreme close-up, such as the shape of a horse that may be the real animal – or not. The viewer’s eye is free to roam the space beyond, triggering individual responses through their minds and imaginations. Multiple cities and multiple dreams may spring into existence, visions as fascinating and as confusing as my own when I was moving about. The concept of the book’s design is that of large colour photographs, some of them set as borderless double spreads, but most of them set in twos and opposite each other, surrounded by white on three sides – three in order to make them “fly off the pages” and make it easier for the viewer to immerse themselves in the illusion.
