The photographs of Mary Macpherson – with a dash of poetry

New book from Peter Black

Idea of damage in New Zealand’s social fabric, be it physical, psychological or economic is at the heart of Peter Black’s new photobook, Frozen. The 56 images of fragments from street scenes, signage and details of human interaction, build a sequence that catches at the heart and mind. The 18cm sq hardback, also features a sharp essay by New Zealand poet, photobook collector and reviewer, Andrew Johnston.

Even allowing for my obvious bias, it’s totally worth checking out
