Peter Black review
I was pleased to see this review by David Eggleton of Peter Black’s Frozen in Landfall Online:
” In Peter Black’s photo-book Frozen, there’s something voodoo-like or juju-like about its colour photographs taken on the fly, as if Black is a witchdoctor with a camera, engaged in psychic healing, or at least psychic assessment. Henri Cartier-Bresson spoke of the need for a documentary photographer in pursuit of a clinching image to have ‘a velvet hand and a hawk’s eye’. Black is one of the gifted few who have both attributes: he knows how to obtain the maximum effect with artistic finesse. He knows how to render the soul of an image.” Read more
Also good to see the recognition of other photo-books such as those of David Cook and Yvonne Todd.
