This book by Berlin based Irish photography James Clancy is called Border Country. The title derives from a name that James uses for his uneasy condition of heart and mind that possesses him from time to time.
The book has a short two page introduction (in German and English) to explain his mind set and the photos that follow. And what follows is a wonderful collection of black & white images of decaying woodland and derelict buildings recorded with attention to the finest of details.
Some images remind me of the beauty seen through the eyes of John Blakemore, others touch on the darker side of urban exploration.
The lighting and tonal recording is exquisite. Border Country is a short book with 38 duotone photos over 48 pages but those photos are well worth studying.
