I have just bought of artist David Gray a copy of his book Vampire and really cannot recommend it enough its absolutly stunning, and comes with a print!, anyway here is more about it in his own words.....:
In Cernavodă, Ceausescu’s ghost still stalks the fringes of town.
The bulk of the tenements are crumbling like rotten teeth and the
outsiders, the Gypsies and the Turks have clustered themselves into
makeshift shanty villages clinging to the city’s perimeter like limpets.
The streets and alleys are dark and lifeless, the dracul could easily
inhabit these shadowy recesses.
Vampire provides us with a powerful but understated pictorial
narrative for a defining moment in Romania’s transformation from
despotism to nascent democracy, a time of hope and despair.
The dream that days break portfolio is a new limited edition
photographic book and print series by David A Gray. Published
and produced by seventy six degrees and clear, a new series
will be released every 6 months. Vampire is the first.
The images are presented in a 10” x 8” 28 page singer sewn book.
There is a text introduction from Paul Summers and an illustration by
Marc Gooderham. The book is accompanied by a 10” x 8” print. Both
are individually signed, numbered and in an edition of 100.
I have copies in the Gallery at £25.00 soon to be online here....
