FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
powerHouse Books is pleased to announce the September 2021 release of
A Photographer's Notebook 1980-1997
By Edward Grazda
In the tradition of Peter Beard, Bill Burke, and Robert Frank, this spectacular photographer's daybook details the wanderlust of faraway travel and profound discovery in a part of the world few have wandered.
Asia Calling is longtime mid-east photographer Edward Grazda's art journal recap of his decades traversing the globe during times of immense social and cultural change on the Asian continent. Starting in 1980, Grazda traveled to Hong Kong, Thailand, Burma, Vietnam, Laos, India, China, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. This was a time of change in Asia–globalization, wars, drugs, tourism, and religion remaking ethnic traditions and governments alike. Grazda's photos–with a few fictional and literary texts–are your passport to that long time ago.
Much like Peter Beard and Bill Burke before, Grazda's journal entries and diaristic graphics–along with his image manipulation and conceptual positionings of his photographs and writings–make this no mere photo notebook, but rather an indelible stamp. A graphic passport of people and places frozen in time comes alive with invigorating juxtapositions and dynamic sequencing, creating a filmic recap of a place and time long gone, but still breathing.
