Safety First
2011 / English / 750 copies
Sketchbook Series # 01 - Safety First is entirely composed of negatives which were damaged by x-ray scanners during our stay in Grozny. In the Chechen capital, these scanners are not only placed at the entrance to the airport or government buildings, but also to shops, gyms, restaurants and outside on squares. In Safety First we ask what the difference is between security and a false sense of security.
