The compelling and often hilarious work of Dutch photographer Otto Snoek explores the relationship between the promise and usually unsatisfying reality of urban life and mass culture, as evidenced during festivals, soccer games and parties throughout the city of Rotterdam.
This large-format collection of colour and black-and-white photos is brought together under an embossed hardcover binding. The images betray humanity's vanities and compulsions, with strange compositions that catch people in unflattering expressions and moments. Snoek unerringly exposes the increasingly commercial character of urban life.
