A series of 15 gorgeously printed panoramas of Calais that effectively erase the old distinction between "documentary and fiction, objectivity and invention...[Koudelka] makes use of photography to reappropriate the world, just as he uses the world to make photographs"--from Bernard Latarjet's essay.
