Phantom City
a photo novel
SC, 12 x 19 cm., 275 pp.
Pels & Kemper 2010

"'Phantom City' is constructed as a novel which tells the story of a phantom city: a place that everybody recognizes but no one knows. Photographs all taken in Rotterdam between 2003 and 2009 are mixed with images and words culled from newspaper clippings, promotional materials, and postcards. As a result, an image of an city emerges where the present, future and past collide and merge into an unexpected narrative." (The Independent Photobook)
