Summary: He was there explores the anthropology of a man in his own reality. In a voyeuristic way Wessels observes and captures a man while he is unpacking his suitcase in. The book investigates and plays with the voyeurism characteristic, with the man eventually provoking the beholder. Who is watching whom? And where does it take place, in a park maybe or a zoo?

He was there is a published as a concertina folding. It represents a timeline that unfolds to 9 meters in length. The book is presented in a box.
