It's been said that one can never too rich or too thin, but the truth for more women is really that one can never ever have too many pairs of shoes.
Shoes- A Love Story is a celebration of this passion, revelling in our infatuation and rejoicing in the stilettos, boots and sandals that have become a very socially acceptable obsession.
Shoes for the Moscow Circus is an atmospheric, lyrical
look behind the scenes of a number of Australian trades and industries,
many of which are fast disappearing in the modern world.
Arts writer Leta Keens, with photographer Oliver Strewe, visited
more than 25 factories and workshops - including an umbrella maker and
cricket ball factory, a taxidermist and a bicycle maker, a tannery and
a dolls' hospital - and discovered far more than simply the history
and processes involved in these trades.
With an engagingly readable
style, she also tells the stories of the characters who inhabit these
intriguing and often little known worlds.
