Publisher's Description
Gathering a series of photographs taken by Txema Salvans (born 1971) over the course of six years, TheWaitingGamedocumentsthe exercise of prostitution along the highways of Spain’s Mediterranean coast. Disguised as a surveyor, Salvans photographed prostitution with an emphasis on the decidedly unerotic quality of its actual environs: the intersections, round- abouts, dead-end streets and shoulders of the road. The photo- graphs in this book present the solitary figure of the waiting woman as a stereotypical image of objectified sexuality, in a landscape that is both striking and tragic. Exploring the varied and often sur- prising gamut of human longings and behaviors, Salvans achieves a balance of sociological dissection and naturalistic narration, and presents the image of the prosti- tute as an almost impersonal component of a larger mechanism.
