The capitalist knows that all commodities... are in faith and truth money.

This book juxtaposes Karl Marx's biting - and memorably expressed - insights into the nature of profit, capitalism, and the capitalist, with images of areas in which the process of profit-making is clearly reflected. Together, the companies whose sites are recorded here generate profits of over $35 billion each year.

Shot during Rencontres d'Arles, the world's largest photography gathering, this book presents an alternative reality to that of the French city's Roman architecture and Van Gogh memorabilia. It is an unseen area of industrial zones, traveler encampments, and high-security prisons. One in which spending is minimized and the drive for profit reigns.
