Miguel Rio Branco's photographs, as Jean-Pierre Criqui points out in the text that accompanies the hundred or so images that make up the work, "propose a broad catalogue of subjects, brought together under a sensitive gaze of the aesthetic transmutation of the humblest or most vile motifs" (Baudelaire, about the ragman in The Artificial Paradises, 1860: "Everything that the great city has rejected, everything it has lost, everything it has despised, everything it has broken, he catalogues it, he collects it.

He collects the archives of depravity, the cafarnaun of waste. He makes a classification, an intelligent choice. He collects, like a miser a treasure, the rubbish that, swallowed by divine industry, will become useful or enjoyable objects again"). The excess is what characterizes the subject here, in this "asphyxiation" that Miguel Rio Branco talks about in the photograph: excess of life that is agitated in all senses, and of death in work that represents its inseparable reverse")
