Publisher's description

British artist, John Peter Askew (b. 1960) works with the camera to create dense, poetic images of domestic life, and of the historical forces that shape who we are.

Since 1996 he has photographed the Russian city of Perm, the easternmost city in Europe, as part of a project investigating the state of modern Europe.

While, We is an extended epic portrait across generations of a single family, the Chulakovs, these photographs transcend their particular circumstances. Askew pays attention to our ‘best selves’, asking us to imagine the possibility of a better, more playful world, and pointing towards who we might yet become.

This beautiful photobook includes texts by the leading historian of photography Ian Jeffrey, the curator and writer Fatos Ustek, artist Lee Triming, and curator Alistair Robinson.
