Sixteen international photographers set off on a quest to find the typical West. The book shows us their astonishing discoveries, a kaleidoscope of the "Western idea." Includes photographs by Annet van der Voort, Arabella Schwarzkopf, Gianmaria Gava, Horst Friedrichs, Lauren Hermele, Mauro Bottaro, Paolo Woods, Philipp Horak, Reiner Riedler, Richard Ross, Robert Haidinger, Simone Casetta, Stuart Isett, Toni Anzenberger, Ulrich Eigner, and Yadid Levy.
