Format: Hardcover
I've been following Robin's work and he's definitely a British photographer to watch. Robin you can tell becomes very immersed in his projects and approaches them in a comprehensive way. He provides you with a meditation on not only a place and its people, but also on time. Not knowing much about Plymouth itself, the book gave me some insights and also made me more interested in it as I continued through the book. The interspersed notes and thoughts added a mini commentary on the subjects of the photos and show Robin's personal reflections. I also thought that Owen Hatherley's essay "In Praise of Blitzed Cities" that ends the book complemented the overall mood and style of Robin's photos. You get this feeling of being an observer, but also an insider, guided by Robin who has always had family living in Plymouth. If you have seen his name around, then you should check out the book: it's one with a certain indescribable something that makes it unique.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It begins with Bukowski poetry. That's a great place to start. I bought this essay in photographs because my daughter is moving there to be with her mother at the age of 16 and I wanted to gain some perspective on the place. Essay? Maybe visual poem woukd be closer to Robin Maddock's perspective? It's very personal. The small notes written here and there add a sense of encounter, of dialogue with the people and the fabric of the place. Created with largely vertical images, the book binding does cut into the landscape shots and it would be better ( but more expensive no doubt) to bind it differently and print on different stock to retain the colour. But none the less I love it as a piece of work. I think, having read the article on the photographer in the BJP magazine ( British Journal of Photography) that Robin has put a huge effort into making this a meaningful collection oc photographs. Often documentary in nature the images engage with the town and the people but I also like the more esoteric emotive photographs where light, atmosphere and colour create an emotional response too. A book to carry around for a while and absorb . I wonder what my daughter will think of it?
