This is a book about the survival of trauma. A series of charismatic and courageous individuals allowed me to photograph and interview them, in an effort to understand how they dealt with their trauma.

Within this book I have stories from Millvina Dean who was the last survivor of the Titanic (this is possibly her last photograph and interview before her death in May 2009), Mark Billingham, the author, comedian and actor, who was held hostage in a hotel room, Mark Dacey who was in the first carriage of the Paddington rail crash and threw up over Tony Blair’s shoes! Tom Watson who was attacked by a bear, Emma Lacey who survived the Asian Tsunami and eleven other contributors.

The foreword is written by Kate Cairns; a Cambridge Academic, published author and lecturer in Trauma Theory.

This is a really interesting collection of powerful pictures and stories. This mixture of seemly ordinary people, with amazing stories brings a fresh perspective on what is important in life.
A nice writing style and layout make this an interesting book, leading you to guess what has happened before you read their surprising stories. This is a perfect coffee table book that I’ve found myself reading again and again.

this is great: the review is good, but the book is better. The photos are really exciting (the survivor of the Titanic, the man who escaped from a bear in a wood, in his carpentry workshop - ho! ho!) and the interviews are moving.

More please!

And the first 15 pages were extremely interesting. Excellent writing style.
