Item Type: Book Section


How do we value the life we are living? For 15 years, photographer Tim Mitchell has studied 21st century objects and commodities, as their transformation testifies to our ever-changing everyday values. He is a poignant observer of social and environmental issues and in his first monograph Product, he asks what sustainable, ethical models of production and utilisation could be. The book addresses the glamourous chaos of Paris Fashion Week as well as the repercussions of global clothes recycling and the financial crisis in Greece; economical, sociological and art historical essays provide further context.
