An Odessa conga line
Yamandú Roos
12 December 2022
published in Issue Two

In ERB Issue One, we published several photographs from Yamandu Roos’s Europeans (2015). The book is a record of a found continent, with glimpses of forty countries. One photograph was titled, « I am in the Team — Effectivity, Responsibility, Order », and showed a business-casual conga-line leaving a pale blue building in Odessa in 2010. It spoke powerfully to the moment. But there was another photo that Europeans did not include, with most of them conga-lining back in. Back to work? Back to play? Hard to say.
