❧ “The photographs inside depict employees of the bank HSBC at a moment when the camera’s shutter incidentally caught them with their eyes closed…For while Manz’s book is a well-deserved provocation to the perpetrators of the global financial collapse, the gesture is leavened with sympathy,”–Brouws, Burton, Zschiegner, eds., Various Small Books: Referencing Various Small Books by Ed Ruscha (2013), pp. 204-5.
