Photography

Ashkan Sahihi's most recent work, reproduced in its entirety in this book, is a portrait of Berlin comprising 375 photographs of women living in Berlin grouped by thirtyfive categories such as professions, age brackets, lifestyles, social strata. Each photograph is accompanied by a brief questionnaire the sitters completed in writing. Taken together, the portraits represent a cautious exploration of Berlin, an attempt to capture a moment in the city's life in a dense description.Ashkan Sahihi (b.
