"Time passes everywhere"
11:23 in New York, 4:47 in Nairobi, 9:07 in Kuala Lumpur: Time passes everywhere and worldwide. The illustrated book ON TIME addresses visually the interaction of time, culture and people in the global context.
In the course of her travels, designer Alexandra Martini has assembled a collection of photographs of timepieces over the last 20 years. These images have now been, in the true sense of the word, chronologically assembled in book format. The photos preserve moments in more than 40 countries on all continents, showing familiar and strange locations, in everyday and unusual situations. ON TIME creates connections with their own dynamics between continents and cultures, inviting to a journey through time and space. It is a multilayered volume that one will return to again and again, perusing the timepieces and lingering at the locations.
