Verplfichtungen: Vince Leo. Verantwortlich: Florian Muller. Realisation: Thomas Weski. Joachim Brohm, b. 1955, Dulken, Nordrhein-Westfalen. "It is easy to note those photographers who give their allegiance to an idea of personal vision, whose pictures somehow all carry their author's visual signature. Joachim Brohm's photographs are not of that mind. Their allegiance is to something more sublime, more self-effacing, more difficult to discern. [...] These photographs accept the burden of history. [...] Seen alone Joachim Brohm's photogrpahs are nothing more than still points of photographic realism, it is thorugh a conjunction with the world that they acquire their power to re-enact change. We compare these pictures to the world itself; we recall what once was, we imagine what will soon be." - from Vince Leo's essay. Somelight shelfwear, else very good. 25.00

Pp (4),[v]-xii,1-[84]. 4to, maroon cloth. With 90 colour photographs. William Harry Bruce (b. July 8, 1934, Toronto) Nova Scotian journalist and freelance writer. "Nova Scotia is rich in two kinds of history. On the one hand there are cannons and treaties; on the other, local legends and family tales - the more intimate, hearsay history that is borne in 'generation after generation of Nova Scotians'. So says Harry Bruce in this affectionate tribute to the province's past. His careful research has yielded an ample store of records, letters, folksongs, and anecdotes that reveal the lives behind the images of coves and highlands, ships and lighthouses, mills, churches, and homesteads that are captured in the photographs of Chic Harris. In these pages Nova Scotia's memories come tumbling out like ripe apples from an upturned basket."- from the dj. Very good in dustjacket. 15.00

139 BRUNNER, Astrid Glass.
AB Collector Publishing, Halifax, 1991, ISBN:1895466008 
BRUNNER, Astrid. Glass. Halifax : AB Collector Publishing, (1991). Pp (8),1-71,(1). 8vo, black card covers, with French flaps. Willaim B. Ritchie illustration, "Magpie" as cover art. A book of prose pieces. "GLASS is a collection of short fiction born of the fire and ice of World War Two. These stories are dream evocations of lived reality. Suspended between oblivion and oblivion the narrative voice becomes GLASS. [...] Suspended between oblivionand oblivion the characters in this collection of short fiction have GLASS in their souls. Like magpies they live in a castle of mountain air. There they have stillness and fortitude, gentleness and beauty. There they are wounded and brilliant. [...]" - from rear cover. "GLASS is both an independent collection of short stories and a catalogue essay for a photography exhibition by George Steeves, entitled "Exile: A Journey with Astrid Brunner". From 11 November 1987 to 21 October 1989 (with a one-session coda on 21 December 1990) Steeves and Brunner worked on the "Exile" photo project whose bi-weekly schedule was rarely interrupted They used associative living and working spaces of artist friends, the Nova Scotia seascape, the Halifax cityscape, and their own respective living environments, the rhythm of working together, and the carefully chosen emotive locations nd props, combined to bring from the deep those moods and evocations not usually allowed above sealevel. By reading the soul-layers of his photographic object shrewdly and, at times, cruelly, Steeves freed her into becoming an independent subject with her own language. Without the descrying behind "Exile", the words of GLASS vould forever have remained an unspoken sorrow" - the preface. Very good to fine. 15.00
