@earth is as revolutionary in form as it is in content. It contains no words: instead it tells its story in the universal language of photomontage, long the favoured medium of radical artists. Peter Kennard is one such, whose work has consistently questioned power structures and injustice, from his anti-nuclear works of the 1980s to his powerful works in response to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. @earth is a photo-essay in seven chapters, combining new works, made together with Tarek Salhany, with iconic images from throughout Kennard's 40-year career. In turn challenging, shocking, unsettling and poignant, @earth makes a powerful statement about the impending eco-crisis, the arms race and the injustices of the power structures dominating today's world.
Good plus condition. There is some bumping to the boards and corners but the contents are very good. "Signed copy" sticker to upper board.
