The book explores the series of archive of photos taken by Alcala and sets up a series of connections with Berger’s words, which are used as a framework to read the pictures from a different perspective. It provides an unusual take on the photos, creating a work that calls into question the act of taking pictures as well as the reproduced image starting from the question: “What makes these ordinary pictures so unsettling?”

Rodney Alcala was active between the late 60s and the 70s. His photographs were found by police in 2010 in a Seattle storage locker. With the exclusion of the most explicit ones, they were released online to the public in hopes that someone could help identify the persons pictured. On January 2013 Rodney Alcala received an additional 25-years to life sentence.
