BOOK RECOMMODATION •  Kehrer Verlag : WEST by Regina Maria Anzenberger

The blurring of boundaries and globalisation – the world is difficult to pin down in a geographical sense. So is the West just a dream then? The WEST photo series explores this question and discovers the many sides of this phenomenon.

The publication collects various photographers, who are on the search for the West, and document their ideas in the most differing ways. It explores the myth of the cowboys, the lives of Cambodian street gangs in the USA, as well as the financial district in London.

Furthermore, the photo book provides insights of the world of gardening plots in Vienna, and follows Pecorino the dog on his travels across Europe.

Following EAST, Regina Maria Anzenberger’s second photo book not only covers the representation of the geographical West, but also the representation of a “Western idea”.
