Walk through the fire
In the latest book by the relentlessly creative “wild child” of street photography, Miron Zownir, the viewer’s learned perceptions are challenged, as the scenery, the streets, and back alleys of our big and debaucherous metropolis, make stage for the eccentric and forgotten, to put on display the plethora of human existence, on the fringes of acceptance.
Bold, raw, and unfiltered, these eccentric and unrestrained artists of life, captured in this book, pull us in the whirlwind, that is their daily struggles, with addiction, violence, self-expression, and homelessness confronted with the rough laws of the streets.
With over five decades of photography, stretching beyond what society is comfortable with, and all around the Globe, Gomma has created an outstanding collection of Zownir’s view of life beyond the norms. Three continents, five decades, decadence and despair, rock bottom and self-proclaimed rock stars.
These portraits captivate us immediately; infuriating, intriguing, humbling to say the least and impossible to retract from.
“Walk through the fire”, an expertly executed masterpiece of black and white street photography, with an essay by renowned “The Guardian” Journalist Chris Campion, that is sure to become a staple in every good contemporary photography book collection. (Verlagstext)
