ART/BOOK PROJECT, 999 ANGELS Street portraits by Dirk Pieter. ●Photo book, part 1. 480 pages, few text pages only. The rest of the book is filled with photographs. A so-called Rough Edition. Imperfect but nice, charming and a slight vintage-like print. ●FRONT COVER TEXT: The first and largest photo encyclopedia of found contemporary angels around the world. ●BACK COVER TEXT: A photo encyclopedia of contemporary Angels according to Dirk Pieter B. This simple rough publication contains photographs from his still ongoing Art and Book project, in which he's trying to find and capture 999 Angels around the world. Starting in 2011, the project in its entirety will cover more than a decade of street portraits. More than a decade of recent found Angels. Or, maybe, to put it more precisely, the project covers more than a decade of optimistic hope, more than a decade of ideals. Or, maybe, who knows, 999 Angels might simply be about nice little mirrored dreams of all times. ●FOREWORD LIZZIE ELDRIDGE*: The photos included in this book are remarkable. Sometimes it's because the individual photos are absolutely beautiful, but it's taking the collection as a whole which makes the pictures so fascinating. It is not glitz or glamour which catches the attention but, and always respectfully, the author creates images which go beneath the surface. It's as if you catch a glimpse of the personal stories behind the people portrayed. Managing to capture nuances, the author shows that in his black and white images, no colour is needed to express colourfulness.  ●(*Lizzie Eldridge is a writer, actor and activist based in Glasgow.)
