This book is a long-awaited reprint by New York publishers Primary Information and Light Industry. On the left and right sides of the double-page spread, photographs taken from the front and back of the person are arranged, and each frame unfolds like a movie as the pages are turned. However, the photographs were not arranged simply to express the flow of time. Sometimes duplicates of photographs were inserted, or the photographs were reversed, showing Snow's spirit of experimentation with books and the field of "images" in a broad sense. . Once the reader opens the door, he or she is drawn into a unique labyrinth-like world, and before they know it, they are pushed out of the door. It is truly an artist book worthy of being called unique.
