Dutch photographer Paul Kooiker’s books are gems that have reached near cult status amongst devotees. His latest (and greatest) Room Service is part of a series; Hunting and Fishing (1999), Showground (2004) and Seminar (2006) all produced in the same format and design and all somewhat fetishistic in nature.
