The piece focuses on an obsessive search for a place of identification and belonging. I describe it as a long car ride without arrival because every apparent arrival makes you painfully aware, that homeland isn’t where you searched for it. The book is an old family album filled with my own photographs, which I mostly took out of the moving car. I also manipulated them in a way, so they look old. In so doing present melts into past and reality into fiction.
