No_Code: Real Life in Silicon Valley

An insightful book for photography enthusiasts from Tod's No_Code.

No_Code is an intersectional project conceived by the Italian luxury group Tod's that examines changes in contemporary society. It is a hybrid idea that fuses emerging technology with Italian craftsmanship.

Tod's No_Code has commissioned the Iranian-American photographer Ramak Fazel to take a journey on the road in Silicon Valley. The aim of the trip is to represent real life in the Valley, going beyond common media narratives.

What lies behind the official images of Big Tech? How do the inhabitants of this piece of California land below San Francisco live? Where do they live? What houses do they have? What restaurants do they eat at and what cars do they drive? How do they have fun?

With his inseparable analog Rolleiflex around his neck, photographer Ramak Fazel takes us on his journey and discovers some secrets in one of the most protected enclaves. This unprecedented and surprising anthropological inquiry uses the medium of photography to reveal one of the most famous places in the world.
