The Pocket Photo books are a new series of immersive photo guides to the experience of place. The series is published by Thames and Hudson and was devised by Harry Cory Wright. They are an immersive visual guide to the experience of place, presenting dramatic spaces, rich textures and carefully selected materials of some of the countries most iconic spaces.
SMALL CAMERA WORKS
The drawings work in parallel to Harry's larger photographic works. He describes the 10x8 inch camera as having an extraordinary capacity to render the totality of visual information of a place. The is no abstraction in the large format photographs. His drawings on the other hand explore the opportunity of minimal information, where gesture, line, tone and sometimes colour are used as the simplest building blocks that conjure up the essence of a place.
FIGURATIVE & ABSTRACT
Some of the works are clearly figurative, seeking out the barest lines of Saltmarsh landscape, rivers and woods. The more abstract works are made with the intention to evoke feelings that a elements of a landscape might induce.
