Parliaments of the European Union
Unique browsing experience with 30 fold-outs and 106 colour photos
In Parliaments of the European Union Dutch photographer Nico Bick (b. 1964) presents a unique photographic view of the plenary chambers where the European democracy is actually realized. The book features photographs of the plenary chamber in the parliaments of the twenty-eight European Union member states and the two European Parliaments in Brussels and Strasbourg. Each plenary chamber is photographed from one viewpoint, from the floor itself, in three or four photographs and presented in a triptych or tetraptych fold out. As a series this project makes the European democratic landscape and its significance visible. Key element of the project is to allow the observer of thephoto series a feeling of being ‘part of the room’. The result is a breathtaking monument to European democracy.
