‘[The Inhabitants] plunges the eye into sometimes innocuous, sometimes monumental, potentially hostile spaces, between vast horizons and gridded views. [It] extends an artistic approach devoted to the way in which human beings inhabit the world and which thereby engages the photographer to work on what connects him to others.’ Guillotine
