Shirley Baker: Women and Children; and Loitering Men (Out of print)
Published to coincide with the 2015 exhibition at The Photographers Gallery the book focuses on a formative period of Shirley Baker's practice and features many previously unseen photographs, in particular her startling colour work from Summer 1965, sequenced as an unfolding visual narrative.
A foreword by Professor Griselda Pollock, and an original short story by author Jackie Kay offer a contemporary reading of the quiet drama of Baker's photographs and serves to underline the photographer's principal significance as a compassionate as well as a humorous teller of stories that make visible the spectrum of human resilience.
Shirley Baker's photographs are available to purchase from Print Sales. A selection of her beach photographs are exhibited on the Print Sales website 9-28 June 2020.Title: Women and Children; and Loitering Men (Second Edition)
