Second edition, the original was published in 1965. 'A Dialogue With Solitude is a paean to life - tragic, comic and lyrical. The photographs are arranged in ten sections and are designed to be viewed in sequence. They follow a progression from weariness and despair, to anger, agony, and in the last few photographs, to the joy and jubilation of shared experience. Each section is complemented by a quotation from diverse writers, among them Yeats, Rilke, Hazlitt and James Baldwin. Between words and pictures the common denominator is always a common humanity.'
