Summary
"Bazaar" is a book large in format, noisy in colour, and crowded with textures and patterns. It contains a collection of observations on the experience of visiting these chaotic, vibrant and expressive places, together with a series of eight original prints. The wanderings are set out in sections devoted to different subjects, among which are food and flowers, spices, personalities and a section on temple memorabilia. There are crabs with electric blue legs in Alexandria, spare teeth in Marrakesh, marigolds in Mysore, woven beds in Jaipur and cheroot-smoking ladies somewhere near Pindaya in Burma. The words and images are taken from writings and drawings and photographs made in the various locations"--Artist's statement included in dealer description
