The absurd story about a black dot and a passport control at the beginning of this book says a lot about Torsten Schumann and his view of the world. In short, life in the civilised world is full of curiosities. Schumann photographs ostensibly mundane scenes that nonetheless cause the viewer to pause, to chuckle or marvel at their accidental ingenuity. He has a keen eye for the improbable as it infiltrates the everyday, and for unremarkable detail framed in such a way as to make it suddenly remarkable. His skill as a photographer lies in the juxtapositions he plucks from the world around us, be it dirty towels draped over traffic cones or cabbages parked against a shiny tin facade. Thanks again to the brilliant Peperoni Books (Berlin).
