2 Willow Road

Veronica Bailey

2 Willow Road is an engaging visual exploration of the private library of modernist architect Ernö Goldfinger and artist Ursula Blackwell. Bailey’s images portray the magnified foredges of a series of anonymous texts, allowing only the title of the work to suggest and restrain the viewer’s interpretation. This attention to detail exposes the couple’s own relationship with these particular tomes. Bailey’s camera captures both pristine, barely-touched pages and the worn edges of obviously much-loved volumes.
