5.0 out of 5 stars Gareth McConnell 8 April 2007
By Fred V. Lowe Jr. - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I became aware of Gareth McConnell's photography by way of a couple of features in the Sunday New York Times. One, back in the autumn (of 2006) featured portraits Of Italian woman vintners. The portraits -- in marvellous, even sumptuous color -- were elegant, but honest. It seemed to me that Mr. McConnell had managed to make the women interesting and attractive by, quite literally, giving them his best shot, without resorting to flattery. I was intrigued. I read the credits and saw Mr. McConnell had a couple of books, including the one under review here. I took a risk and bought the book. I have no regrets. The several suites of photographs go in remarkably different directions: night photographs of flowers in public spaces, wind-shaken and subtly mysterious; the self-propagated wounds and infections of IV drug users; close close-ups of the painted surfaces of sectarian murals in Northern Ireland. The photographs do all have in common an addiction to color. More importantly, they have in common an intelligent and unsentimental respect for the subject matter, a cool kindness if you will. Every photographer needs a good eye. This one has also got a heart and a brain.
3.0 out of 5 stars Unfocused 14 July 2007

3 stars only because it was so cheap. Gareth Mcconnel has tons of talent but this book is an unfocused, poorly produced mess.
