"Both mountains and keys invoke symbolic values of protection and safety. The mountain is a natural defence. At the same time, to lock something up with a key is to safeguard what is valuable to us...The key is, therefore, another mechanism of defence against unwanted intrusions. It is a curious fact that if we look carefully at the serrated edge of a Yale key we find that it reproduces the morphology of a mountain chain. What is the hidden significance of this coincidence?"--Joan Fontcuberta. The artist explores the theme of security throughout this timely book. Read Publisher's Description.
