This book proposes a counter-narrative of the city of Oxford, England, that resists the visual imperatives of its venerable university. Over five years, Mexican photographer Arturo Soto explored the long-standing division between the town and its academic history through a careful selection of spaces and objects. His visual narrative is loosely structured around a few themes: notions of home and homelessness, the looming presence of Brexit, the conflicted local economy, and the diversity of the city’s neighbourhoods. In short texts, Soto describes his experience of the city along with its history and myths, challenging established narratives of tradition, influence, and power.
