photo-eye Book Reviews: Silence by Brad Rimmer
"It sometimes seems miraculous that compelling photographs can be made anywhere on earth, even in the most unpromising environs. It may even seem so to the photographer making the photographs, that a place and its people may remain visually recalcitrant despite all one's skills and will. Just when you think the world's visual riches have all been tapped, and every strategy applied and reapplied to the most mundane and lifeless subjects, along comes this surprisingly gratifying collection of photographs of a remote town in Australia with an ungainly name-Wyalkatchem, or Wylie for short." -- from George Slade's review of Silence with photographs by Brad Rimmer.
