John Peter Askew’s pictures show us the poetry of the everyday. Three years in editing, WE II is a companion volume to WE (described as “a wonderful book... a beautiful, close, incredibly touching and vast photographic story…”)
While WE II is an epic portrait across generations of a single family from the easternmost point in Europe, these photographs transcend their particular circumstances. Askew pays attention to our 'best selves', asking us to imagine the possibility of a better, more playful world, and pointing towards who we might yet become. This work, stretching back over a quarter of a century, is a timely and idiosyncratic chronicle, embracing friendship, communality and kindness.
