In early 2011, Jimmy Edmonds’ son was killed in a road accident while traveling in SE Asia. From personal tragedy he has created a moving and insightful book that reflects the way we use photographs in the process of mourning. It is also an exploration of the nature of photography itself. The “chaos of meaning" that Edmonds discovers lying at the heart of photography, mirrors almost exactly his own confusion surrounding the death of his son.
Rarely have photography and poetry come together with such force.
