Eighty-seven color images taken in different European cities portray the relationship between man and the urban expanse, between the unspeakability of reality and the solitude of the subject, where the gaze is lost in the prisoner of labyrinths.
In the metropolis, man searches for the world. But he finds himself alone in front of intriguing architectural works that dominate life and hinder his journey. From Paris,passing through Lübeck up to Warsaw, without forgetting Berlin and many other cities are immortalized by the lens of the camera where the only common thread that binds them is to be desert and silent.
