Abner Nolan’s contribution to the book series is entitled Away, and is created solely from found photographs. Through careful editing, Abner has combined photos of different formats and sizes into a fascinating recontextualisation of history. As an early adopter of the use of found imagery, Nolan continues his investigation of the medium of narrative through photography to build a tome that when coupled with the title leaves us with the exact mood the title suggests. A brilliant use of image, sequence and abstract narrative.
