In 2012, Oliver Curtis started to turn his back on monuments. For the next four years he took photographs looking away from many of the world’s most visited – and therefore most photographed – monuments and tourist sites. After four years he had amassed over 45 images from around the world. The collection entitled Volte-Face was first exhibited at the Royal Geographical Society in London in 2016. A book of the project is published by Dewi Lewis Publishing. He lives in London and is hoping to stay home more.
Geoff Dyer’s most recent books are Broadsword Calling Danny Boy – about the film Where Eagles Dare – and The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand. A selection of his writing on photography from the last ten years will be published by Canongate in May 2021.
