Fake Holidays
Introduction Bill Kouwenhoven
HC ,35 x 28 cm., 144 pp.
Moser 2009

"Fake Holidays' is a photo book capturing the world's "artificial paradises" and its absurdities - such as indoor skiing in Dubai, Tropical Islands in Berlin-Brandenburg and Niagara Falls in China. This book seems slightly odd (or perhaps lost in translation at times), but I do find the imagery really inspiring in a sci-fi dreamlike absurdity kind of way.
