This book contains photo’s and texts about the mansion in Germany my mother, stepfather and grandparents live. In some pictures you can see a part of a person, hidden and small. It’s about the presence that is and has been there throughout times in different places. It contains four stories, each of which possesses one of the four lines. They’re about the previous inhabitants and their obsession with the garden, the neighbours, the history of my parents and grandparents like my grandfather’s consistent urge to move house because of his previous incarceration in the Japanese internment camp.
