‹Facing Britain› takes a kaleidoscopic look at the British nation, showing everyday scenes next to politically charged events: Ascot meets Belfast, the Falklands War meets intimate moments in British living rooms.

Not a normal tour company. 28 figures between heaven and hell in a picture that reads like a parable of our time.

In slow motion, the virtual camera is circling the pump from the Texan manufacturer Lufkin, whose arm tirelessly goes up and down. John Gerrard's portrait of an oil pump ‹Lufkin (near Hugo, Colorado) in a desert-like landscape is not only realistic in terms of the technical details, but also shows the position of the sun and the course of the stars synchronized with their location in the western United States.
