Sparks: Adventures in Street Photography : Adventures in Street Photography Hardback



'To put it simply, this book is fun. It's also funny, deep, at times disturbing, at other times profoundly hopeful.

But every image gets remade in ways that hold a bit of genius' Lens Culture'Funny, tragic and often bizarre, Stephen Leslie's photos in his book Sparks are an unique ode to street photography' GuardianA family isbrought close to ruin by a pet python; an Icelandic advertising agency has aproblem with a campaign involving a dead seagull; a chiropodist desperatelywants to stop examining people's feet and dreams of becoming a pirate... Stephen Lesliehas always tried to capture images that hint at wider, hidden narratives -suggestive moments rather than decisive ones - and Sparks is a book that imagines the weird and wonderful storiesbehind his original street photographs. It is alove-letter to photography, pairing eighty beautiful colour images - shot onfilm - with these stories, as well as the author's recollections of twentyyears spent looking through the lens.
