              A woman washes ashore in Sicily. She has come from north Africa to find her son, taken from her when he was just days old by his father and stolen away to Berlin. With nothing but her maid's uniform and a knife stashed in a plastic bag, she relies on strangers-some generous, some... exploiting-to guide her passage north. These strangers tell of their encounters with a quiet, mysterious woman in a blue coat-each account a different view of the truth, a different truth. And slowly these fragments of a life piece together to create a spellbinding story of the courage of a mother and the versions of truth we create to accommodate our lives. Haunting and beautiful, Hand Me Down World is simply unforgettable.

              'If you haven t fallen in love by the end of the dance you haven t danced the tango.' So says Rosa, fiery Argentinean restaurateur, to her 19-year-old kitchenhand and bumbling dance partner Lionel. As a story of the most captivating nature unravels, their unlikely union on the da...nce floor develops into a bond of love and obsession - fierce and all encompassing, and so it mirrors the dance. As they dance, Rosa tells Lionel the story of her grandfather Paul Schmidt and his lover Louise. A secret love that spanned decades; from their time during the First World War hiding out in a cave on New Zealand's West Coast - to Buenos Aires, where they continue their affair, dancing the tango endlessly in her barren room. The language is beautifully crafted, the imagery strikes straight to the heart. And while the old story is being told we become aware of the uncanny parallel with the present- between Schmidt's granddaughter Rosa and Lionel the dishwasher. This is Jones at his finest.

              Then she lifts the Fish up from the bassinet and holds him out to me. 'Go on, take him.' And to the Fish she says, 'This is your uncle.' I manage to clap my hands either side of the fish bundle. But I feel like I am holding an expensive glass. Once you're told not to drop it, all... you can think of is the glass shattering across the floor. When the baby is born in a shabby caravan at a beach campground, it's clear he is not like other babies. But the family will try hard to protect and love and accept him. Perhaps all the more to make up for letting his troubled mother down. The young uncle grapples with his connection to the Fish. And as he tries to understand his family and its confusing secrets and shame, his sense of his own place in the world begins to crumble. Lloyd Jones's unique lyrical style is mesmerising in this tender story of family bonds, both strained and strengthened by tragedy.

              This photobook was brewed from the conversations and arguments over our anxieties of mortality, technologically mired existence and degradation of the environment, exacerbated by our incessant international travels. The images and texts are extracted from such travels, drenched i...n other sordid human histories that somehow got us here.
