ANOTHER HAPPY DAY), the book can be read as an ironical or darkly humorous take on happiness, as its vintage imagery traverses the melancholy, the obscured, the forlorn and the preposterous. Throughout, sepia scenes of mildly homoerotic posturing, slapstick play or gymnastic antics mix freely with mistier, more sober imagery of obliterated faces and what seem to be long-forgotten moments and places, strung together along a carefully orchestrated narrative flow.

Intimate in its production and feel, this handsome clothbound volume offers a warm-hearted paean to photographic history and lifes perpetual brevity.
