Roaring Days: Photographs by Matthew Sleeth
In this his first book of photographs Sleeth continues to pursue the themes that have long preoccupied him - comradeship, masculinity, romance and alienation. Similarly he continues his intoxication with the expressive qualities of light and shadow. However Roaring Days suggests a departure for Sleeth from the more traditional photo essay form into a more fluid, more loosely structured poetic narrative. Central to Roaring Days are the popular earlier series 'Cox and Rizzetti Foundry', 'Boys' and 'Silvers Circus' but woven around these core works are seemingly disparate single images shot in various locations around Australia.
