About this Item

The Hollow of the Hand marks the first publication of Harveys powerful poetry, in conversation with Murphys indelible images. It is a landmark project and will be published internationally in autumn 2015.As PJ Harvey says: Gathering information from secondary sources felt too far removed for what I was trying to write about. I wanted to smell the air, feel the soil and meet the people of the countries I was fascinated with. Following our work on Let England Shake, my friend Seamus Murphy and I agreed to grow a project together lead by our instincts on where we should go. Seamus Murphy adds: Polly is a writer who loves images and I am a photographer who loves words. Our relationship began a few years ago when she asked me if I would like to take some photographs and make some films for her last album Let England Shake. I was intrigued and the adventure began, now finding another form in this book. It is our look at home and the world.
