In eighty-two brilliant, disturbing, and compassionate photographs, extended as if across the time it takes for a baby to wake up and recognise the grandfather who is waiting with the child to cross a busy, dangerous street, Peter Black has composed one of the great photo-portraits of our time. A digital flâneur on high alert crisscrossing the complex urban landscape, Black has seen and loved the tender, sad, and often humorous details of life lived moment by moment on the streets of his home city,' Ian Wedde (leading New Zealand art writer and current Poet Laureate.)
New Zealand photographer Peter Black portrays life and the human condition, using the streets of Wellington, New Zealand as a stage. The sequencing of images in the book is almost cinematic, creating complex narratives based on a political and moral viewpoint. This landmark publication restates his position as a leading exponent of street photography.
Beautifully designed and printed, limited print run of 1,000 copies.
