Work, Play and No Rest

by Julio C. Osorio, Lizette M. C. De Mendonca

Condition: New

London: Work, Play and No Rest, 2004. Photographs taken on the hoof during a five-year back-pack pilgrimage around South Africa, Colombia, Peru and Mexico. Colombian Photographer, Julio Cesar Osorio, wanted to reflect the memories of his own childhood through camera lens; concentrating in the poorest areas of the countries visited to show how children live only with the basics but who have found happiness in daily chores. It prefers to focus on these moments of sanctuary from grinding poverty: a cheerful Colombian girl playing in a river, three pre-adolescent Venezuelan windscreen cleaners, showing the vitality of their age, and the day to day mischievousness of childhood, rather than images of abject realities that shock and are then forgotten. The main concern of this project is to urge people to help those or any children that are not by their own faults, but that have just happen to be born into those circumstances. Contains 158 photographs of poor and disadvantaged children in Colombia, Mexico, Venezuela and South Africa. 20% from each copy sold will go to two charitable organisations looking after deprived children in Abancay in Peru and Cape Town in South Africa. "Colombian photographer shows his unique way of capturing the beauty of things that most of us would not see" Bookseller Magazine. Limited edition of 2000 copies signed by Julio Osario.. Signed by Photographer. First Edition. Paperback. New. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
