Taking the form of an affordable mass market paperback, Voyeur is a compact representation of society as image spectacle. A sprawling taxonomy vernacular photography, images from every possible genre are here--crime, fashion, sports, advertising, and on and on. The variety of sources, mostly twentieth century, is equally sprawling. They are presented scrapbook style in miniaturized black and white half-tone reproductions. 
"Voyeur trawls the image wreckage of our consumer-driven culture, making eccentric or sinister juxtapositions (shots of nude women next to aircraft crashes) and cataloging the blandness of media bombardment to render its toxic assault visible to us, its near-helpless voyeurs."

Each and every page of Voyeur by Hans-Peter Feldmann is packed full of pictures. Completely unexpectedly, photos of naked women are arranged next to snapshots of airplane crashes. Are we voyeurs like the artist himself, or has he caught us out?
