van MANEN, Bertien. Let’s Sit Down Before We Go.

(London): Mack, 2011.  First edition.  Oblong quarto.  Unpaginated.  The photos in this book taken between between 1991 and 2009 in Russia, Moldova, Kazachstan, Uzbekistan, Ukraine, Tatarstan, Georgia. The editing and sequencing of the images has been done by Stephen Gill. The title of these series, ‘Lets’s sit down before we go’, is a metaphor for the subject of the images. It also represents an old Russian tradition, the practice of taking a moment, stopping to think before embarking on a journey, to consider where we will be travelling to and why.  A near fine copy in limp boards without dust jacket as issued.
