Description

‘To put it simply, this book is fun. It’s also funny, deep, at times disturbing, at other times profoundly hopeful. But every image gets remade in ways that hold a bit of genius’ Lens Culture

‘Funny, tragic and often bizarre, Stephen Leslie’s photos in his book Sparks are an unique ode to street photography’ Guardian

A family isbrought close to ruin by a pet python; an Icelandic advertising agency has aproblem with a campaign involving a dead seagull; a chiropodist desperatelywants to stop examining people’s feet and dreams of becoming a pirate…

Stephen Lesliehas always tried to capture images that hint at wider, hidden narratives -suggestive moments rather than decisive ones – and Sparks is a book that imagines the weird and wonderful storiesbehind his original street photographs.

It is alove-letter to photography, pairing eighty beautiful colour images – shot onfilm – with these stories, as well as the author’s recollections of twentyyears spent looking through the lens.
