Freya Copeland – Footfalls Echo
Replika Publishing 2019
First Edition Sold Out!! – New expanded second edition.
This is the expanded second edition with new special features, including a new Essay by Anna Hanlon.
Footfalls Echo explores loneliness and disconnection suffered in major modern cities in a time of increased promise and opportunity of wider personal interaction created by the internet and social media platforms.
The book is bound and presented as a personal diary, tracing movements and thoughts through a city promising to be your friend while at the same time rejecting you at each turn. The three distinct image styles present the viewer with three modes of connecting with place, the endeavour being to come to terms with this unrealised attempt.
Footfalls Echo is a photobook comprised of 63 pages with 31 colour photographs and 27 black and white photographs. All photographs were shot in and around New York City in 2015 on two olympus AX1’s and a Nexus 5 smart phone with the exeption of 6 medium format colour still life shots in Berlin from a Mamiya 67rb.
