This striking, evocative book is a testament to Tohby Riddle’s skill, dedication and commitment to making a strong statement that he believes in. It’s a book about light and dark, doubt and faith, friendship and compassion.
Riddle’s representations of the strangeness of the urban landscape evoke a sense of movement that has been captured – and stilled momentarily – as if by the lens of an old-fashioned camera. Whenever we spend time with it, the spare text and mesmerising images have a way of calming the room around us as if there is something peaceful settling over us as we read. It is a triumph of wonderful quiet beauty.
