Presentation by Dewi Lewis:

Give My Regards To Elizabeth is a record of Peter Bialobrzeski's time in England in the early 1990s, when having finished his studies at the Folkwang School, Essen he was awarded a one year DAAD stipend at London College of Communication.

Germany was then experiencing a booming, optimistic post-unification economy whilst the UK was a country and an economy still in recession, with growing unemployment and declining optimism. Thatcherite capitalism had left its deep marks on people and places. For Bialobrzeski the UK seemed to still be a class-ridden society, something that he had not previously experienced in Germany.

Influenced by the British colour photography of the 1980s, the book and the pictures present a fascinating historical document. In some images one can already see the ideas and visual concepts that would, twenty books and numerous exhibitions later, result in Bialobrzeski establishing his reputation as one of today’s leading European photographers.

Peter put together the images he shot in the form of two handbound book dummies and now, 27 years later, the work is published as an almost facsimile version of the original layout. "

Texts in English by Mick Brown and Peter Bialobrzeski.
