»Berlin-based photographer Tobias Zielony has visited the small, ramshackle Californian chemistry city because it is ›possibly the worst place in America, if not the world‹, to quote a blog; his pictures show a small town entirely in the grasp of producers, dealers and consumers of a crystalline drug that keeps people on their toes for days and lets them age decades in the course of a mere few months. Chemists call it methamphetamine, addicts call it ›crystal‹, or ›meth‹, or both; politicians call it the new American pandemic.«
(Peter Richter in Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung)
