Dave Heath - Dialogues with Solitudes

Dialogues with Solitudes follows American photographer Dave Heath’s (1931–2016) radical 1965 book A Dialogue with Solitude, which captured the restless zeitgeist of the 1960s like a protest song. Heath depicts the fractures and unease in postwar America’s society of abundance by photographing lived, intimate experience: tension in city streets, close constrained bodies and isolated individuals who have seemingly lost their sense of self.
In Heath’s words: “For me, the act of photographing is no more than making … diaristic notes that come out of engagement with the world. It is in my sequencing of photographs that I create poetic structure, a connective linkage, not chronological or narrative in development such as a photo-essay, but emotional in development.”
