Really thoughtful review by Peter Ireland of Steve Braunias and Peter Black’s The Shops on Eye Contact.
Here’s a review of the Medical Daydreams exhibition, The Shops and other shows at Photospace Gallery.
Peter and I will be talking about the making of our books – The Shops and Medical Daydreams – tonight at the Wellington Photobook Club. The event starts at 6.30pm at Photospace in Courtney Place. All welcome.
The sample proofs for Peter Black and Steve Braunias’s The Shops found their way from China to our house. Happily the reproduction looks excellent. There’s also a wonderful personal essay by Steve that reminds me of some of my favorite long Robert Hass poems.
I love the feeling of an abundance that sets of proofs give – all those images before you and the unbeliveablity (is that a word?) that these sheets of paper will fly up and become a book.
More book excitement in the household.
The Shops, the book that Peter Black is doing with Steve Braunias of Luncheon Sausage Press just went off to China for proofing and printing. The work features 44 of Peter’s colour photographs of shops and a great personal memoir/essay from Steve. This hardback book will be a cracker – just in time for Christmas.
And back today from binding in Petone, was Peter’s beautiful handmade orange book of original prints, Blessed. The work features people crossing the intersection of Queen and Wellesley Streets in Auckland, in the operatic evening light. As well as being an interesting conceptual piece, it throws light on the demographics of Auckland via the main street.
