"It is worth considering how Wood’s work resembles the early work of Paul Graham, Chris Killip and Martin Parr, all included in MoMa’s 1991 exhibition and publication British Photography from the Thatcher Years (Wood is mentioned in that book by curator Susan Kismaric as a younger photographer to look out for in the years to come)."

Bob Mazzer - Underground

Just spent 36 hours travelling back to the UK and the first thing I did upon arrival was open up my copy of Bob Mazzer's 'Underground'. In fact I'd been so desperate to get a copy in my haste I forgot I'd already pre-ordered it and ended up with two copies!

Anyway, of all the photobooks I own this is the one that talks to me more than any other. I love Gilden, Merlmestein and the rest but they took photos in a far off place in a time I never really knew. With his new book, however, Mazzer offers glimpses into a recent past I know very well. I suspect that this book would appeal to anyone who travelled by tube from the 70s onwards.

I remember those dated phone booths with the hanging directories. I remember smoking on the tubes. I even remember that Superman advert, though at the age of ten I'd have not understood the LSD reference. Perhaps I have a romantic view of travelling on the tube as a kid but I think Mazzer captures some of those ethereal memories I still have of the London Underground perfectly. From straight-up portraits to beautiful 'decisive moments', this is a cracking tome.

I'm particularly intrigued by the photo of another photographer wearing a huge Canon rifle, rolls of film around his waist, a Leica book in hand and a straw hat on his head. I wonder if Mazzer will ever able to find out who that bloke was. It's certainly not difficult to leaf through the pages and expect someone you recognise to jump out at you. In a way, most of the people are recognisable, either through their clothes, their poses or their recognisable environment.

I definitely recommend this book, not just to photographers but to anyone who commuted around London by tube.

There's an exhibition to accompany his book at the Howard Griffin gallery. Link here: http://howardgriffingallery.com/artists/bob-mazzer
