              Two Walk in Edinburgh
               

              Two Walk in Edinburgh (Paperback)

              By O'Brien, Gregory; Photographs by Mahr, Mari

              • RRP: $225.00
              • $225.00

              Mahr's photographs date from the time when her late husband Graham Percy first became very ill. Percy was a New Zealand-born artist, illustrator, typographer and designer, and many of Mahr's images register his presence. In the context of the city of Edinburgh, objects such as a ...paint brush, an open book and an ancestral fob watch become private monuments to his life and work. Much of Mahr's photographic work is concerned with architectural forms and constructions; here it is the architecture of grief at stake. Collage-like, Mahr's methodology is one of salvage, holding on to and making visible that which remains. O'Brien's brief and imaginative poems are tender memorials in verse and prose to places and people: 'nothing/out lives you/you live/on'.
