Away from our family and friends, things we are accustomed to, routines and familiarsights. This book titled The Book of Coincidence depicts the reflections of thirty students from around the world studying in Zurich, Switzerland during the Spring 2013 semester.

Each student was asked to contribute by photo documenting four different reflections: 1) An object that they couldn’t leave home without 2) A photo or message from a loved one they miss daily 3) Their favorite part of the day and lastly, 4) Something they are afraid of or uncomfortable with in the city of Zurich. By gathering these photos I wanted to compare each student’s personal observation while highlighting some of the overlapping similarities.
