Hello there, in this blog post I want to share a book that I purchased last month. During the talk with Sebastiaan Hanekroot, he was kind enough to bring a number of books he had worked on. The selection was incredible and there were many books that were breathtaking, one that stood out for me was "My last days at seventeen" by Doug Dubois. Published by Aperture which made the price of the book accessible to me. The book portrays the youth of a town in Ireland, a recollection of portraits, still life and a couple of illustrations by Patrick Lynch throughout the book.
The detail in the portraits is incredible, they were shot in large format, therefore the images are impeccable. The images are strong technically but also each photograph has a story, along with the booklets inside the book filled with illustrations or sequences of images that bring more to the book.
Worth buying this book, the hard work and detail is evident.
