Donovan Wylie One Day Taking Photographs In Belfast by Peter Mann
Printed in an edition of 200 copies, each with a unique cover.
£10 + £1.50 p&pBuy Now
The Photographs in this book where taken during a walk around North Belfast one afternoon in September 2005. At the time Peter Mann and Donovan Wylie were in Northern Ireland working on a film about the Maze prison.
“That afternoon walking around Belfast was the first time I actually saw the city. I had known Donovan for years and from his photographs I had an idea of what it might be like. Seeing the place for real and at the same time through Donovan’s eyes was a wonderful way to be introduced to Belfast and I started to understand a little more why he is so fascinated by the strange architecture he grew up surrounded by.
I have, on many occasions, walked around with Donovan with one or both of us taking photographs. Sometimes for jobs or serious projects and other times just because we both love to take pictures and maybe more importantly because the act of taking the pictures helps to really see and understand the world around you.”
Peter Mann has collaborated on film and photography projects with Donovan Wylie since they met in 2000. As well as working on the documentary films Wylie made in the early 2000’s he has edited Wylie’s last three books ‘British Watchtowers’ 2007 (Consultant editor), ‘Maze 2’, 2009 and ‘Outposts’ 2011.
The book is released to coincide with the two Donovan Wylie exhibitions'Topography of War', exhibition at Le Bal, Paris from 17th September'Outposts', National Media Museum, Bradford from 30th September
This book is a limited edition of 200 copies. The small run pointed us towards digital printing - a technology that has improved enormously in recent years. Unlike traditional litho printing, there are no expensive set-up costs (plates etc.) which are traditionally such a challenge when producing such a small run. It also meant we were able to push the design in an interesting direction. Every one of the 200 copies has a completely unique cover and is numbered on the reverse, something that simply cannot be done with litho. Each copy is also hand numbered.

And Pray That All of Our Pain Be Champagne.
Peter Mann’s new book is a celebration of vernacular advertising and a tragicomic look at the reality of branded luxury items away from the multi million dollar advertising campaigns normally used to sell them. The book is made up of photographs and copy used on ebay. Seen without the guile of the worlds top photographers and copywriters many of the things for sale seem absurd and often tinged with tragedy, especially in the current economic climate.

Sargy Mann - Probably the Best Blind Painter in Peckham by Sargy Mann & Peter Mann

click here to see some sample spreads from the book. 

A Photographic portrait of Sargy Mann and his paintings by Peter Mann, reproductions of paintings and drawings and a text by the artist.
The book is based around twenty seven paintings chosen by the artist to represent different periods in his life as a painter. The first is from 1963 and the most recent is from 2007. The text is a 45,000 word piece by the artist. Each chapter takes one of the twenty seven paintings as its starting point, but the text as a whole builds to tell the story of how he has continued to paint about the world as he sees and experiences it, while his sight has deteriorated to the point of total blindness.
Each of the twenty seven paintings has been photographed by Peter Mann where they are hanging today. Throughout the book we are moving back and fourth between the artist at home or at work in his studio  and photographs of his work hanging in different peoples houses around the world, or in one case wraped up in storage.
