Skorched by Connor Dobbin

Skorched by Connor Dobbin

Regular price $25.00 CAD

Compiled during an intense summer heat wave, Skorched brings together a collection of diverse imagery by the young independent Canadian photographer, Connor Dobbin. Combining original and appropriated imagery, together with an evocative text by Sierra Armor, Dobbin’s book unfolds as a sprawling, hypnotic visual essay, evocatively interweaving striking portraits with experiences and imagery taken at the automotive parts factory where he works.

Largely self-taught and unconstrained by conventional production expectations, Dobbin’s unique, analog approach to image making creates a temporal, almost otherworldly assemblage of images. Neither descriptive nor allegorical, this book is a uncompromised examination into the intersection between identity, relationships and popular culture.

Documenting friends, family and his surroundings using a second hand film camera Dobbin’s developed a significant body of work and has published a book – Fantastic Misery, as well as an ongoing zine series entitled Friendly Fiends. Skorched is his second book.
