by Dorothy Cross
Published in collaboration with Ballynahinch Castle
Two related books 256 pp. 85 and 96 images respectively. Full colour. Published in a slipcased, special hardback, limited edition of 150, which also includes a folio containing an original print (made especially for this edition signed by the artist); and in a slipcased, paperback, edition of 850 (without print).
With evocative glimpses of previously unpublished autobiographical photographs, these books present surprising visual juxtapositions and intriguing sequences of images, which weave autobiographical archive imagery with documentary imagery of artworks, revealing elusive fragments of a personal history. Unexpected resonances work back and forth across time and space as the pairings of images, on the open pages of these books, work their influence each on the other.
