"Working on Bureaucratics, we sometimes felt like the police inspector forced to commit a crime to solve a murder.

What possesses two people - a photographer and a writer - to visit thousands of government officials in eight countries spread across the globe? The idea for Bureaucratics is rooted in experiences and irritations with the bureaucratic process but also in the fascination with the unfazed manner in which tens of millions of officials worldwide keep the wheels of government spinning..."
