Title: THE FLOODS Photographer: Joseph Wright Publisher: Self-Published & Date of publication: 2015 Pages: 50 pages + custom sleeve Dimensions: 210 x 297 mm Edition: 2nd Edition of 100 ISBN: 978-0993089206 The Floods series of photographic work takes the reader on a part autobiographical, documentary and environmental journey exploring the antithesis of the English pastoral landscape. The often overlooked, unnoticed or ignored wooded places that are passed by as we go about our lives; scruffy patches in the corner of fields, by the roadside, behind industrial estates, all remnants of a once heavily wooded and valued countryside – forming parts of the edgelands; land now abandoned with no perceived use.
Every book is personally signed and hand bound by Joseph, thereby completing the creation of work from his initial moment of seeing.
Title: NOISE Photographer: Kumi Oguro Publisher: Le Caillou Bleu Date of publication: September 2008 Place of publication: Brussels, Belgium Pages: 64 Dimensions: 24 x 17.5 cm ISBN: 9782930537009 Someone once said about one of my works, “This photograph has noise” - the white noise of interference, disturbing the beautiful music on the radio.
You don’t know what it really is, but it's there in the background, making you feel anxious, uneasy, getting on your nerves.
Such noise keeps buzzing in my head like tinnitus. Its shape may change, little by little, but it will always be there in the images I create.
My first book NOISE consists of the photographs created in the period between 2002 and 2008 and a text by Emmanuel d'Autreppe (Fr/Eng/Jp).
