Number 10 of the photography serial Ohio presenting the work of Indonesian photographer Jusopo Muh. Arsath Ro'is who was an employee of the municipal archives in Amsterdam. From 1959 to 1981 Ro'is documented the expansion and changing infrastructure of the city of Amsterdam. His photographs of the new housing estates on the outskirts of the city earned him the nickname "sand photographer". A well-known anecdote about Ro'is is the fact that while carrying out an assignment, the moped with which he traveled through the city was stolen. Afterwards, he always left the replacement moped in plain sight, so that many of his photos show the vehicle in the foreground. The publication also includes small paper inserts or 'directions' by Peter Lorre.

Ohio Photomagazin was an annual published by a group of artists including Hans-Peter Feldmann. The editors describe the publication: 'Ohio deals entirely with already existing images, it selects and recombines them. Ohio publishes images from very diverse sources and doesn’t differentiate between ‘genres’. There is a strong focus on non-artistic photography, images come from private and public archives, the daily press, the Internet, from scientists, amateurs... Presenting images in a different context opens up new dimensions of meaning and aesthetics, it challenges the conditions of their interpretation and reception. The photos are shown entirely without accompanying text, the authors are credited in the imprint.'
