The leading makers of artists’ moving-image
A parable of the pleasures and perils of indulgence, and a wicked, waspish skit on a world where greed is good, and it’s OK to give in to every temptation.
Based on Larsen's film of the same title, this new publication brings together beautiful photography, three new essays and transcripts of interviews, overheard conversations and river shanties.

Rob Crosse, Clear as a Bell
Crosse’s work often focuses on groups of older men who are bound into intimate and supportive networks through a collective activity. Their stories allow him to observe the smallest gestures and subtlest interactions. Social rituals are central to this new work created during his time as artist-in-residence at Kingsgate Workshops.
