NOWHERE shows a world in which Instagrammability seems to rule; in which the new reality is dictated by the seductive image that may (later) be made of it. Architecture, design and urban landscape, directed by the mechanisms of global big business. The same antiseptic beauty, all over the world. NOWHERE - Imagining The Global City collects photographer Frank van der Salm’s work of the past 25 years. The image of a consumer-oriented, imaginary metropolis rises from this book, designed by Irma Boom. Images – sometimes upside down – question each other about the reality they represent. Together, they form the image of a city that, all of a sudden, seems to be simultaneously everywhere and nowhere, yet: here now. Textual contributions by Shumon Basar, Aaron Betsky and Urs Stahel, link Frank van der Salm’s oeuvre to the world of design, architecture, urban development, art and photography. --- Please note: Three different cover/bellyband combinations. Due to logistics it is not possible to choose a cover when ordering online. ---

Frank van der Salms retrospectief in het Nederlands Fotomuseum is uitgesteld tot de zomer, maar het bijbehorende boek is er al. Het past perfect in deze beeldschermtijd. (..) In het boek, een ijzersterke kandidaat voor het jaarlijstje met beste fotoboeken, staan ‘echt’ en ‘construct’ door en naast elkaar. Boekontwerper Irma Boom heeft Van der Salms oeuvre intuïtief geordend.
