Summary Photographer Linke presents 200 of his color photographs taken all over the world and thematically illustrating globalization. The photographs individually vary widely in terms of subject matter and even composition, including enigmatic pictures of smoke rising from the "Ground Zero" of September 11th, the smog rising over Mexico City, an aerial view of Brazilian rainforest, the fence designed to coral anti-capitalist protestors in Montreal during the FTAA conference, street scenes of Saddam Hussein's birthday parade shortly before Iraq's invasion by the U.S., and Russian astronauts training in a swimming pool. A certain stylistic unity seems to emerge through the accumulation of mostly wide-angle shots. A brief critical essay and an interview with the author is appended to the end of the work.
