Hardcover with dust jacket, 144 pages, 220 x 290 mm
Excellent monograph survey of Nigel Shafran's work to 2004, from early portraits and fashion photography through his more celebrated series, such as Ruth's Book, Washing up 2000 and Dad's Office. Shafran's artistic practice is characterized by the quiet observation of everyday life. His chosen subject matter is deliberately low-key and often domestic in nature. And yet, his work extracts from this something profound and consistently beautiful, the sense of a natural order in ordinary things. Edited by Celia Davies, with essays by Val Williams and Paul Elliman, and an interview with the artist by Charlotte Cotton.
