5.0 out of 5 stars An intriguing and intimate account of Britain's most famous school, 20 April 2011
This review is from: Eton - The Boys' Side (Hardcover)
'Eton - The Boys' Side' is a vivid an enlightening view of a school who's name cannot be escaped. As a student of Eton College not many years ago I had to (and still have to) encounter and challenge the innumerable stereotypes attributed to its pupils. Once or twice we would appear in the press, often in bad light, and David Cameron's association with the school is almost always perceived negatively. This book offers a far more accurate account of what life at Eton is really like for its students. The photography is thought provoking and incredibly diverse. Whilst the photographs are not specifically attributed to either Sloan or Mosesov, one can see a clear difference in style, and the two work marvellously to combine the regal and the beautiful with the everyday and the prosaic. All in black and white, the book has a certain poetry to it and each boy who is photographed is incredibly individual in character and image (a quality captured wonderfully by the photographers).

If you have any connection to the school whatsoever, I urge you to buy this as it sheds new light on the wonderful place that is Eton. If you know nothing of the school or town, however, this is a perfect place to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 20 Jan 2011
This review is from: Eton - The Boys' Side (Hardcover)
was shocked to find out that these pictures were taken by mere students. I highly recommend the book for anybody who wants glimpses into the quirky yet wonderful world of Eton. A must buy for parents especially to preserve the cherished memories!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning and timely, 15 July 2013
This review is from: Eton - The Boys' Side (Hardcover)
This book presents an unseen view of Eton, with extraordinary shots of the students, teachers and staff going about their daily lives. The book is a product of the utmost time and care, having met the authors I learnt that it was shot entirely on film, developed by them and printed in the highest quality at a publishers in Italy! An excellent project that will surely see both of the authors go far!
