‘Prächtig’ offers an insight into the artists’s work with 96 plates covering his portraits and still life photographs.

The Austrian photographer’s glossy, large-scale photographs evoke the compositions of traditional still life and portrait painting. His subjects are suffused with all of the sensuous opulence of a Caravaggio and decked out in the trappings of modern absurdity. From paperclips and piercings to spaghetti wigs and cardboard flamingoes, his works are both bizarre and beatific.

Sargy Mann: Probably the best blind painter in Peckham

An insight into Sargy Mann’s fascinating career, written by the artist and his son Peter Mann.

The book is based around twenty seven paintings chosen by the artist to represent different periods in his life as a painter. The first is from 1963 and the most recent is from 2007. The text is a 45,000 word piece by the artist. Each chapter takes one of the twenty seven paintings as its starting point, but the text as a whole builds to tell the story of how he has continued to paint about the world as he sees and experiences it, while his sight has deteriorated to the point of total blindness.

Each of the twenty seven paintings has been photographed by Peter Mann where they are hanging today. Throughout the book we are moving back and fourth between the artist at home or at work in his studio  and photographs of his work hanging in different peoples houses around the world, or in one case wrapped up in storage.
