Imperfect - Book Launch

Emma Bass
Oct 30

PQ Blackwell and Black Asterisk are delighted to collaborate with award-winning photographer Emma Bass on Imperfect, the first example of the new photographer monograph format developed by photography publisher PQ Blackwell.

Emma Bass has been exploring the artistic and commercial fields of photography for twenty years. Her art has been exhibited in galleries throughout New Zealand. At first glance her new collection Imperfect appears to be a series of formal floral compositions, but closer inspection reveals subtle flaws ­– drooping stems, wilted leaves, fallen petals – Emma’s personal reflection on the transience of beauty in a world where perfection prevails. The artist says she is drawn to the idea of elevating the humble and overlooked, the faded and forgotten.
