Rook Vrij

The smoking ban for bars and restaurants is the talk of the day. Smokers outside and the non-smokers inside.
But in the small neighbourhood pubs it’s another story. Allthough the ashtrays are gone in most pubs, the smoking continues as if there never was a smoking ban.

The book ‘Rook Vrij’ (Smoke Free) visualizes in a raw poetical way the effect of the smoking ban in small pubs.
