Sparks: Adventures in Street Photography
A family is brought close to ruin by a pet python; an Icelandic advertising agency has a problem with a campaign involving a dead seagull; a chiropodist desperately wants to stop examining people's feet and dreams of becoming a pirate...
Stephen Leslie has always tried to capture images that hint at wider, hidden narratives - suggestive moments rather than decisive ones - and Sparks is a book that imagines the weird and wonderful stories behind his original street photographs.
It is a love-letter to photography, pairing eighty beautiful colour images - shot on film - with these stories, as well as the author's recollections of twenty years spent looking through the lens.

What Reviewers Are Saying
'To put it simply, this book is fun. It's also funny, deep, at times disturbing, at other times profoundly hopeful. But every image gets remade in ways that hold a bit of genius' Lens Culture
'Funny, tragic and often bizarre, Stephen Leslie's photos in his book Sparks are an unique ode to street photography' Guardian
