1000 WORDS PHOTOGRAPHY — Book Review

1000 WORDS PHOTOGRAPHY, Issue 06, Fall 2009
Book Review of We English

"...You can see in his work, thematic similarities to Tony Ray-Jones, John Davies and Martin Parr, although it is not, of course, ironic or cynical. Still, it isn’t social critique he is after. His work is unashamedly beautiful, more subtle in its discovery and representation of forms of cultural character and identity which actually, upon closer inspection, reveals a much great richness of detail and meaning. With a Simon Roberts it is a case of the more you look, the more you see. We English has tremendous historical and anthropological interest; it takes us on an amazing journey through ideas of belonging and memory, identity and place. It is one of those rare books than you can and will come back to time and time again.”
