With his photographs, the American photographer Schles approaches the omnipresence of social structures, which – pushed by the flood of media images – are undergoing permanent, almost frantic change. In a veritable visual roller coaster he sends his viewers onto city streets, playgrounds, into pubs and bars, puts them into a police helicopter and takes them to death row, hospital rooms and police interventions. There is no “story”, only a breathless sequence of pictures condensed into thematic clusters – a highly intense visual experience soon holding the viewer spell-bound.
