Editorial Reviews

Review

"Fielding's human exploration of vision, perspective and vitality are captured by his acute detail to light and shadow, surface, and design, where documentary-style street photography meets portraiture."

(Jen Hazen The Chicagoist)

"[Fielding's] images, silver gelatin prints, are beautifully and simply composed, often shot in bare courtyards and on plain backdrops, and many have a hauting feel to them. Blind children are an unusual subject to photograph, and the images that result are faintly worrying, often almost surreal, but also highly expressive."
(Robert Keeley Australian Photography 2010-01-01)

"Fielding's work achieves what only great art, and particularly great portraiture can: it launches and then complicates a process of identification across the barriers that separate us from each other. . . . This is a monograph of uncommon significance by an important American photographer."
(Photography Collector)

Jed Fieldings book is essential for anyone who is a serious collector of Photography. This body of work is unique and unforgettable. It will make a strong impression and you will find yourself needing time to process all that you see. It is too strong and subtle to understand the impact of his work without going back to the images over and over. Please purchase and enjoy this amazing book.

Format: Hardcover
Jed Fielding in his newest photography book " Look at me" isolates faces into dynamic compositions that make you want to look and turn away at the same time, and yet compel you to look closer. A bold decision to make some of these strong images in fold out series so we could experience the movement, the rhythm of light moving across a face that reads like a geological map. Profound, powerful and provocative, "Look at Me" will keep you looking again and again.

This is an extraordinary book. The images are striking and provocative, but profoundly moving. Although some of the photographs seem tragic at first, Mr. Fielding succeeds in conveying a sense of compassion for his blind subjects. It is a remarkable achievement.
