Book Launch

12—12 mar 2012


Daniel Blau is excited to host the launch of David Bate’s new book Zone, published by Artwords Press. David Bate is a photo-artist based in London, widely known also for his writings on photography, art and culture. He is the author of Photography and Surrealism: Sexuality, Colonialism and Social Dissent; Photography: The Key Concepts and forthcoming, Photography After Postmodernism: Barthes, Stieglitz and the Art of Memory.

The relation between cinema and photography is beautifully explored in this book of photographs. Bate takes his cue from the celebrated filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky to bring the issue of ‘seeing the other’ forward to a post-Soviet context. Located in the Baltic state of Estonia, the photographs associate the experience of everyday life with questions of memory, image and narrative.
