Examining the experiences of everyday life, Florian van Roekel has created the book 'How Terry likes his Coffee.' The Dutch artist provides a deeper look into office culture capturing five different offices throughout the Netherlands. Artist van Roekel is quoted as saying on the online publication thisispaper that the "images are documents, taken from a candid reality. But what they really seem to document is the way our perception of the world around has been colored by years of media input."

The series is a microcosm for the human need to look for personal connections when people are disconnected from their environments. Florian van Roekel's book captures everything office layouts and doodled notepads to the brief arm clasp between colleagues, looking at the consequences of professionalization.
