Book Launch: Retraced 81/19 — John Davies

18 December - 18 December 2019

RSVP

ALL WELCOME

 

Retraced 81/19 is the new book of extraordinary photographs by John Davies: published November 2019 by GOST Books in a first edition of 1000 copies.

Signed copies of Retraced 81/19 are available for a limited period.

The 92 black and white high quality duotone ‘before and after’ photographs in Retraced 81/19 were made at locations in England, Wales, France and Germany between 1981 and 2019. These images track transformation over time – often dramatic sometimes subtle – in places as diverse as the UK cities of Sheffield, Liverpool and Manchester, the Durham Coalfield, Lancashire Cotton Towns, London’s Kings Cross and the Berlin Wall before and after the historic unification of Germany.

‘ These landscapes are not just about surface appearances and architectural features; they are symbols of human endeavour. They are about the actions and legacies of people within a culture shaped over generations. And they reflect the individual and collective impact on the environment that continues to shape our world. 

These pictures represent a human story of effort and achievement but also the many, often untold, histories of conflict and exploitation. The photographs capture a specific place at two moments in time. But perhaps the real subject of Davies’ pictures is the suggestive space of time between those moments. His vision is undiscriminating in the best sense, compelling the viewer to draw their own conclusions.

Martin Barnes, Senior Curator of Photographs, Victoria and Albert Museum, London: from Retraced 81/19 book preface.
