At the periphery, the city illuminates itself, negatively. Every image seized there, at the precipice where the urban compulsively extinguishes itself, is a story so concertinaed by sensation or absence that it fixes the eye profoundly into that image. In Europe, from Marseilles, to Berlin, to Rome, to London, the cities are engulfed: rendered into negligible corporate outposts, all images relentlessly pitted-out – except on their resistant peripheries. [Extract from the accompanying text by Stephen Barber]. The book contains the following series: Flowers (1998-2000), Rooms (1997-2000), Sanctuary (2002), Thresholds (2001-2002), Stones (2000), Fires (2002), and a number of pictures from London, Marseille, Berlin and Rome.
