Christian Patterson’s bookwork Redheaded Peckerwood made it onto more "best of" photobook lists last year than any other title. The book works with the tricky balance between fact and fiction and ultimately relies on an engagement with the reader to bring their own feelings, imagination and interpretation to the work.
Jörg Colberg says this, the work is a body of amazing depth and sophistication, it is a shining example of what the contemporary photobook can do.
Jörg has used the occasion of the books second edition as on opportunity to talk to Christian about the book. The conversation is well worth a read and you can do so HERE, linking to Jörg Colberg's Conscientious site.
