Suicide is a recurrent theme in the entries for 2016. Opening this book one immediately feels the sense of threat emanating from it, with its black-and-white photos painting a picture of a desolate urban landscape. Contrasting with them are smaller insets, booklet-like elements in which the essential building blocks are colour photos. These colour sections contain photos of those who have been left behind, who here provide brief outlines of the events surrounding the suicides of people who were once part of their lives. The atmosphere of intimacy that speaks from these small inserted sections is tangible. Form and content are wholly congruent. At Schönste Bücher aus aller Welt (Best Book Design from all over the World) in Leipzig this book won a silver medal.
