Maxime Verret’s beautifully presented new book Tubes, released through Paul Grund’s Serpent Press. Risograph printed with silver ink on black paper, they really couldn’t have chosen a more fitting way to present the subject of these photographs.
« Taipei is known as a street food capital, its reputation owing to the multitude of street cuisine and vernacular fixtures. Wandering through the city, I naturally delved into a recurrent detail, the air extraction system of the kitchens, often filing past in an anarchic way, (true) silver snake trying to fray itself a path in the compact and dense universe. No more no less than an objective exploration in the labyrinthine universe of Taiwan, Street Tubes is the fruit of those wanderings, inviting us to loose ourselves in the city mazes ».

Do not ask why a book of pictures of extraction systems can be so captivating, but the combination of Maxime’s photography and Luc Borho‘s design is a real treat.
