The publication showcases colour photographs taken from 1981-85 by Vancouver-based artist Roy Arden, reflecting his interest in photographs “full of flesh and things”, which function “as a lyrical but Realist poetry.” Fragments reflects his experience of the world in a fashion that is personal but not autobiographical, essentially melancholic, and revealing of a time and space overlooked by means-end rationality. Arden produced these portraits and details of urban texture in Vancouver, Paris, Geneva and Berlin. Text by Peter Culley and Roy Arden.
