Dave Green's Personal is a book of raw, vivid, immediate and sometimes witty photos that will transport you to the road, the street, the tavern - and sometimes the motel room too. These photos are tmospheric with cracked concrete and the sizzle of streetlamps, but just as compelling are the people: caught in moments of contemplation or joy, with a directness and immediacy that shine on the page.

Personal is more than a collection of photographs: this is what a life feels like.
