A Darker Sun presents the complete series of photographs of the same name by photographer-editor Dean Brierly.
“The stunning, multi-layered images are a perfect blend of form and content. Each is a statement in and of itself, yet, all are related to each other as in frames of a film, joined by the singularity of Brierly’s vision in deep black and moody orange.” – Stuart I. Frolick, Director–Editorial, Photographic & Video Services, California Institute of the Arts (CalArts)
“Balanced between abstraction and representation, the subconscious and the urban zeitgeist, they reflect a photographer and historian of 20th century art, cinema, literature and music, who manifests, in richly textured visual shorthand, a carnivorous curiosity and intelligence.” – Carol McCusker, Curator of Photography, Harn Museum of Art at the University of Florida.
"Darkroom manipulation gives my work an organic integrity,” says Brierly in the essay found inside the book. “I have a belief that a successful image shouldn’t come too easily. You should have to work for it.”
In addition to the photographic series and essays, this interactive book also contains a nine minute video presentation of the photographs with music composed and performed for A Darker Sun.
