Product description

Thomas Joshua Cooper

Some Rivers, Some Trees, Some Rocks, Some Seas

Il Prisma s.r.l., Galleria d'Arte, 2003. Hardcover. Condition: very good Dust Jacket Condition: some fade lines and soft bend at base of front cover. 1st Edition. No markings. When Thomas Joshua Cooper talks about his work, it's like sitting in a detailed geography/history lesson on ancient Portuguese shipping routes and watching an inspired art history slide show (with references to Morris Graves, of all people) at the same time. All of this is intoned by an American-born, spiritually aware lumberjack-type fellow who's self-imposed rules-of-photography ("I only ever make one exposure with only one lens.") presume a stoicism that yields amazing results. His current, wildly ambitious project intends to take him to the farthest most Eastern, Western, Southern, and Northern tips of various land masses and bodies of water; the British Isles have already been canvassed and he is still circumbulating the Atlantic Ocean. His work is as mesmerizing as ever; his prints of rocks and undergrowth, water and grasses, thoroughly explore the darker end of the grayscale without ever sacrificing a brilliant white when needed. This catalogue, from Italy, presents a beautifully reproduced sampling of some of his best work.

Published to accompany the 2003 exhibition of the same name and now hard to find.

Oxfam Bookshop Balham

Balham, or 'The Gateway to the South' as Peter Sellers once called it, is a bustling corner of south west London, situated between Clapham and Tooting. The area is well known for its comedy heritage, thanks in no small part to Sellers's sketch, as well as comedy circuit staple The Bedford Arms and famous residents Arthur Smith, Andy Zaltzman and Richard Herring. The area also hosts something of a literary heritage with DBC Pierre having written his Booker prize-winning first novel in Balham. Our bookshop is located on the busy High Road just down the road from the tube station which was bombed in October 1940, an event immortalised in Ian McEwan's Atonement.
