Reduced, scarce, empty, naked, almost comical. Touching on the bizarre, Leonora Baumann's photo essay takes us on a tour through the highways and by-ways of the European Council on it's busiest day. Where reporters run to and fro; where information is traded; where big decisions are made, she seeks spaces that breathe through and around the politics of the day.
An exploration that subtracts all the leaders, policy wonks, bodyguards, photographers, journalists and hangers-on; a sensitive observation of the before and the after of the storm.
