Round About Town

Boniface, Kevin

Regular price €18,50

“For the last eight years Kevin Boniface has been writing succinct descriptions of events and incidents that have taken place whilst out and about on his postal round, his daily route taking him from the main sorting office to the streets and outlying neighbourhoods above the town. In these commentaries and records nothing seems to be typical—engaged and disconnected conversations, the observed and the overheard—the everyday activity of life on the move.”

A postman’s perspective on small-town life in West Yorkshire, presented in text and b/w photographs, poetic snapshots that celebrate and reveal the absurdity, tragedy, beauty, or poetry of seemingly insignificant moments; “Monday, 6 September // In her garden on Hart Street, an old woman in a dressing gown empties a jug of custard onto her borders.”
