Cheap business cards sent Susanne Huth on the trail of a flourishing international trade: selling cars in upcoming cities in West Africa, cars that would be worth next to nothing on the German second-hand car market. Without committing herself to a chronological documentation, Susanne Huth's photographs taken at the shipping location in Hamburg give us an exact picture of the transfer procedure: the shabby slab building that houses the logistics firm, the transport lists and route maps, the rows of cars against a backdrop of loading cranes, the view through the car window of the interior that is used as an additional hold to accommodate more goods.
