Winter. Photographs by Jeffrey Conley. Nazraeli Press, Portland, 2011. 64 pp., 42 duotone illustrations, 12x13". Images from photo-eye.
I love the Swedish summer, and it is such a sunshine day today, but these images and their texture, mood, colour palette (or lack thereof) and graphic, quiet nature felt really inspiring to me (which I guess they probably wouldn't if it was deepest darkest winter).
"Jeffrey Conley's gorgeous first monograph, which takes its name from its primary subject, comprises a selection of 42 images of the essence of 'Winter'.
Known for his meticulously crafted black and white prints, which have been widely exhibited and collected in the United States and abroad, Conley lives and works in the Willamette Valley of Oregon."
