Text in German; from an edition of 800 copies. A selection of images from a photo archive procured by Piller, consisting of about 20,000 aerial photographs of homes taken between 1979 and 1983 by a company whose intention was to sell the images to the homeowners. Piller's selections are divided into 23 categories, each focused on various details: pools, cars being washed, birds in the frame, laundry hung out to dry, graveyards near the homes, lawns being mowed (one homeowner looks puzzledly up at the plane), etc. A profound and fascinating series with uncommon perspectives on the prosaic, suburban context.
