Gems Survey is a book of memories: Pinned to the bare field of each page, huddled in the corners like frightened animals, are small images of buildings, scraps of cities and shreds of skies, clippings of stars and far off galaxies. These are the places that Andro Wekua has traveled to, real and imaginary, environments that influence and make-up a large part of his oeuvre.
