Descripción del producto
I loved The Hollow of the Hand, a distilled fusing of poems by PJ Harvey with photography from Kosovo, Afghanistan and Washington, DC by Seamus Murphy to make a powerful alchemy, one that broadens the vision (Ali Smith)
Prepare to have your conscience shaken (Daily Telegraph)
Precision and a sense of artistry . Murphy's photographs have an ability to capture war without judgement . An uplifting exploration of a brutal subject (The Times)
Astonishing . Mesmerising . By turns harrowing, evocative, poignant and, yes, even humorous. Ultimately, the words and pictures are testament to undiminished human resilience . Spellbinding . Fascinating and occasionally disturbing (Sun)
Excellent . The imagery suggests an unhealing national bruise, one still so tender that blood might flow at any time ... At once celebratory and deflated . The Hollow of the Hand is a sincere and sincerely impressive collection (Independent)
Murphy's stories and films illuminate Harvey's crisply enunciated poems as well as his own arresting images . Punchy and vivid (Guardian)
Their combined reportage consists of a series of stark images, lyrical and visual . Pictures of airstrike aftermaths, and Afghans with faces like novels **** (Evening Standard)
A well-produced collaboration. Both contain striking imagery. Murphy - who has won seven World Press Photo awards - has an original eye and a storyteller's sense of an unfolding narrative (New Statesman Books of the Year)
This book is as handsomely produced as its subjects are in dire straits . Heartfelt and serious . Every picture tells a story . Murphy's eye unites one subject with the next. He is especially good at taking photographs of figures in a landscape overwhelmed by the vastness. I loved the extraordinary pictures of Afghanistan's beautiful, hostile and seemingly endless horizons (Observer)
The Hollow of the Hand, P. J. Harvey's and Seamus Murphy's book of poems and photographs, is haunting and elusive. Lyrical, song-like, declarative, the poems have a devastating directness; the photos are direct in a different key (Times Literary Supplement)
Reseña del editor
FINALIST IN THE PHOTO BOOK CATEGORY OF THE PICTURES OF THE YEAR AWARD
Between 2011 and 2014 PJ Harvey and Seamus Murphy set out on a series of journeys together to Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Washington DC. Harvey collected words, Murphy collected pictures, and together they have created an extraordinary chronicle of our life and times. The Hollow of the Hand marks the first publication of Harvey's powerful poetry, in conversation with Murphy's indelible images. It is a landmark project and will be published internationally in October 2015.
As PJ Harvey says: 'Gathering information from secondary sources felt too far removed for what I was trying to write about. I wanted to smell the air, feel the soil and meet the people of the countries I was fascinated with. Following our work on Let England Shake, my friend Seamus Murphy and I agreed to grow a project together lead by our instincts on where we should go.'
Seamus Murphy adds: 'Polly is a writer who loves images and I am a photographer who loves words. Our relationship began a few years ago when she asked me if I would like to take some photographs and make some films for her last album Let England Shake. I was intrigued and the adventure began, now finding another form in this book. It is our look at home and the world.'
The Hollow of the Hand will be available in a hardback edition with highest quality photographic reproductions, as well as a reader's paperback version.Ver Descripción del producto

The two editions share the same content, but the Deluxe edition is larger and more rectangular, allowing the poems to "float" more on the page. The paper on both books is lightweight and textured; at this price, I do wish the Deluxe edition has been printed on glossy paper. Harvey's poems, which brought my attention to the project in the first place, are more like "snapshots" of particular moments than fully developed poetry. Murphy's photographs show day-to-day life in an unvarnished, insightful way. A more knowledgeable friend of mine who flipped through the Deluxe edition was impressed with the artistry of the photographs.
As a coffee table book for fans of PJ Harvey or Seamus Murphy, the Deluxe edition is a treat, but for the money, I'd stick with the Reader's Edition.
