From the publisher: "Twelve years after the legendary success of his first book of photographs, Invisible City, Ken Schles returns with his long-awaited project, The Geometry of Innocence. Schles' focus is on the relentless shifting of social structures and spaces that mark the urban landscape of today. His images form a kind of visual roller coaster, sending the viewer onto city streets and playgrounds, into pubs and bars, putting the viewer inside a police helicopter and taking them to death row, hospital rooms, and police interventions. While there is no story per se, this breathless sequence of pictures is condensed into thematic clusters, providing a spellbinding and almost physically palpable experience."
