Darren Sylvester - Compass Point


Darren Sylvester's Compass Point is a dreamy, colour-washed collection of nondescript, slightly unnerving tropical land and seascapes from supposedly decadent Bahama, where Sylvester travelled to record an album at the famous Compass Point Studios (a space that has hosted anyone from Grace Jones and Talking Heads to Mick Jagger and Roxy Music). It proves a stunning and surprisingly personal volume of photographs that examines the disparity between lofty, mythologised expectations and idiosyncratic realities.

72 pages, 270 x 210 mm, hardcover, M.33 (Melbourne).
