Product Description

A photographic survey of the American soul / A look at the fringes of society / Expressions of independence, pride and freedom

Whether in the mountains of California or on the rooftops of New York, in all parts of the United States one can be overcome by a sense of remoteness that is not only rooted in the vastness of the land, but also manifests itself in the absence of a society. One can spend days without meeting a human being. And yet signs and mailboxes indicate that people live in these areas far from society. Similarly, one can lose oneself between concrete and asphalt in the confines of the big city. With their book 'Off Worlds', Louise Amelie and Aljaž Fuis literally look at the periphery, the fringes and outskirts of America's natural and urban landscapes. Their photographs do not necessarily describe a spatial demarcation from society, but also a systemic or perceived demarcation that not infrequently turns into an expression of independence, pride, and freedom.
