How Terry Likes His Coffee by Florian van Roekel

How Terry Likes His Coffee is back in print! The first edition, published in 2010, was selected by Martin Parr as one of the best books of the decade. The second edition, limited to 1000 copies, is available here.

Van Roekel describes the book this way:
"My work evolves about the way we experience everyday life and how that affects the way we deal with each other. My images are documents, taken from a candid reality. But what they really seem to document is the way our perception of the world around has been colored by years of media input.

For fifteen months I explored five different offices throughout the Netherlands. The book narrates on feeling disconnected from your daily surroundings but at the same time longing for a real personal connection with another human being. I suggest office culture and our society as a whole is pre-occupied with a rational way of interpreting. I’ve searched for the invisible barriers and the will to break them."

A video of the book is available here.
