Having been aware of Seth’s work for some time, I was intrigued to hear that he had released the book, Earth People. Published by Toronto-based Working Title (an interesting organization whose site is well worth checking out), this monograph is their first published title.
From the Working Title website:
“Earth People is a visual narrative composed by Seth Fluker. Set against a backdrop of digital and natural landscapes, this sequence of images connects disparate strands of contemporary life through an array of photographic genres. With a haunting undertone of artifact and reverie, Earth People explores the introspective nature of human behaviour while tracing metaphysical observations.”
Softcover, Perfect Bound, 64 pages / 32 images, offset 4/4, 8.5 x 10.5 inches
First edition of 500 copies published by Working Title in November 2013
“These images were taken with consideration but not planned. For example, while working on the sequence of Earth People I thought it was important to have a photograph that represented “reflection” which I ended up finding at my friends cottage in Muskoka. Overall, alignment and personal interests are fundamental to my photographic process.”
It really has been a busy few months for the CPPS with the launch of the Jessica Eaton edition at VIVO on Main St., Vancouver, older works by Rodney Graham being shown in New York and the hiring of our incredible intern Cassandra Tavukciyan. Please take some time to look at Cassandra’s beautiful work here.
The Jessica Eaton launch which was part of the Capture Photography Festival, was a huge success and very well attended. Thanks to everyone for joining us on an extremely rainy Vancouver night. See the previous post for photos.
Jessica Eaton was recently featured in The Guardian in a piece by Sean O’Hagan. A must read.
