Jonas Dahlström – 07:27:47 (re-published)

Review by Paul Anderson •  Have you found yourself alone, walking through a familiar urban environment, hardly aware of your surroundings?

Reinhard Matz – Faces Without People

Review by Gerhard Clausing • The process of depicting simulated people in fake ‘portraits’ has reached new levels of perfection.
