Stories from the road, the tavern - and the motel room too.
Dave Green's Personal is a book of raw, vivid, immediate and sometimes witty photos that transport you to the road, the street, the tavern - and sometimes the motel room too. These photos are atmospheric with cracked concrete and the sizzle of streetlamps, but just as compelling are the people: caught in moments of contemplation or joy, with a directness that shines on the page.
128 pages with 102 plates, offset printed on 100# HannoArt Silk, plus personal notes by the photographer.

Read from the Book

This is a book of contrasts, the tension in the dialogue a whisper. Look here: youthful lust and yearning, women and lovers juxtaposed with landscapes busted and stripped down. Lust is a counterpoint to dilapidation. The tang of tungsten light in cavernous bars and then a street lamp, suddenly a votive light in a night sky over lovers like some crazy benediction. As if there was hope...If there is a reckoning, it is on the road. The photographer/passenger, the night and a beautiful woman at the wheel; a motorcyclist with a life garbage-bagged and strapped to the saddle of his BSA, maybe in flight. A bleak stretch of road ahead, road the arbiter. Love goes but the road always stays. Road, the redeemer.- from the introduction, by LP Farrell
