The photos show what the artist frames «the immediate and the spectacular». The photos are shot in many different cities and towns in Norway: Drammen, Fredrikstad, Furuset, Bø, Halden, Hamar, Holmestrand, Horten, Hønefoss, Jessheim, Kaldbakken, Kongsberg, Kongsvinger, Kristiansand, Larvik, Moss, Notodden, Oslo, Porsgrunn, Romsås, Sandefjord, Sarpsborg, Skien, Stavern, Stovner, Tønsberg og Østerås.
The 88 photographies creates the book as a paradoxical room of poetry close to life. Within this room there are two texts by two poets: Kjersti Bjørkmo’s ”The time and the sound when I stand in a market place and wait, after buying a bag of flower soil, before meeting with someone I have never met”, and Tomas Espedal’s text without title (in Norwegian) (Østerås 15.juli …)
