Sparks: Adventures in Street Photography, Hardback Book

Sparks: Adventures in Street Photography Hardback



A family is brought close to ruin by a pet python; an Icelandic advertising agency has a problem with a campaign involving a dead seagull; a chiropodist desperately wants to stop examining people's feet and dreams of becoming a pirate... Stephen Leslie has 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 stories behind his original street photographs. It is a love-letter to photography, pairing eighty beautiful colour images - shot on film - with these stories, as well as the author's recollections of twenty years spent looking through the lens.
