This book brings together recent work by the British photographer Toby Glanville, made in the south east of England during the last few years. Like the best photographs, Glanville's restrained and delicate colour images - combining portraits with reflections on places - are both simple and densely weighted with the complexities of time and space. Glanville's setting for the work is largely rural, and yet here he generates a response to people and their traces that is entirely contemporary and compelling. Published to coincide with an exhibition of his work at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, this timely publication establishes Glanville as an important voice in British photography. The book includes an introduction by David Chandler and essay by the eminent psychotherapist and writer Adam Phillips, whose books include On Kissing, Tickling and Being Bored and The Beast in the Nursery.
