Peter Fischli & David Weiss: 800 Views of Airports by Peter Fischli Peter Fischli & David Weiss: 800 Views of Airports, Hardback (October 2012)

In 1988, Fischli and Weiss began working on an ongoing series of airport photographs. At first glance, the images appear commonplace, almost like tourist photographs. They focus on the banal side of air travel: the fuel vehicles, the baggage trucks, the daily routine of the airport worker.
