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. The 10x8 inch camera has a strong capacity to render the totality of visual information of a place; it shows every single detail with no abstraction. His drawings of the salt marsh where he lives on the other hand explore the opportunities of minimal information, where gesture, tone, colour and often singe line are used to represent the fundamental elements of this intriguing landscape.
Here the simplest lines explore the forces of nature that form creeks, dunes, rills, dips and swirls where sand, water and air react to the pressures of time, tide, gravity and wind.
