Bristol - New Perspectives
In Bristol New Perspectives Jamie Koster turns the familiar into something exotic. With his keen photographer’s eye, careful selection and some artifice, he shows us a Bristol we haven’t noticed before.
The Elizabethans had a word for it: a conceit, a fanciful, ingenious or witty expression. His idiosyncratic book is just that – a photographic conceit.
Here, then, is Bristol to be enjoyed for what it isn’t: Venice, or Sweden, or Brassai’s Paris by night; war-torn Baghdad; a chunk of Mayan architecture; Indonesia, or down-at-heel New York.
Welcome to a new Bristol.
