Photographed in a small pub in Drum, Ireland, on a single evening and with only a few rolls of film....
Top Customer Reviews
Errata books, if you don't know, give us mere mortals the chance to experience ridiculously rare photobooks by making what could unkindly be referred to as photocopies of the original.
But, the last paragraph does not do these books justice, yes they contain scanned and reprinted copies of the original book (and they are not cropped so you can see the book covers) but the printing is excellent and very well rendered.
This book, in particular, has lots of murky greys and blacks which are reproduced brilliantly.
In addition, the errata books contain very well written essays on the subject matter, something you don't often get in an original photobook. Here we get an essay about the gestation and shooting process of this book, something that was very welcome as there is scant information on the web about Clement and this book in particular.
The subject matter itself is very intriguing, a small, dingy pub in Ireland photographed over the course of an evening in 1991 by Clement with nothing more than a Leica and a few rolls of Ilford film.
The essay tells us he was in Ireland on a grant but, rather than mix with the other photographers, he took to driving around on his own as he was feeling melancholy and not really interacting with the others. He stumbled across the pub, spoke to the landlord about the recent loss of their respective mothers and was given carte blanche to to photograph the patrons.Read more ›

All and all, it's a good photo book that manages to improve on the original printing somewhat with more information form the photographer as well as his retrospective view of how the book fits in with the rest of his carrear.
