Of This Place and Elsewhere by Jerry White

Book Description

A key figure in the Toronto New Wave of the 1980s, Peter Mettler is one of the most intriguing and audacious filmmakers in English Canada, known not only for his work as a director but also as a cinematographer and editor. His films are distinguished by an innovative approach to the medium, regardless of genre, bridging the gap between experimental, narrative, personal essay, and documentary. All of his work is visually stunning, particularly the two films he is best known for: Picture of Light and Gambling, Gods and LSD. Mettler is also an accomplished photographer and a pioneer in multimedia work. His live visual mixing performances are groundbreaking and legendary, and he has long been considered a leader in this field. In Peter Mettler, Jerry White focuses on Mettler's career as a director, emphasizing the global nature of his films. White also discusses Mettler's groundbreaking explorations in the field of visual mixing and his work as a still photographer and cinematographer. The book is richly illustrated with examples of Mettler's work.

Mansions of Misery by Jerry White Mansions of Misery, Hardback (October 2016)

For Londoners of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, debt was a part of everyday life. But when your creditors lost their patience, you might be thrown into one of the capital's most notorious jails: the Marshalsea Debtors' Prison. The author introduces us to this prison's unfortunate prisoners - rich and poor; men and women; and innocents.

London in the Nineteenth Century by Jerry White London in the Nineteenth Century, Paperback (October 2016)

London in the nineteenth century was the greatest city mankind had ever seen. Its growth was stupendous. Its wealth was dazzling. This was the London of Blake, Thackeray and Mayhew, of Nash, Faraday and Disraeli. In this book, we witness the city's metamorphosis over the course of the century through the daily lives of its inhabitants.

London in the Twentieth Century by Jerry White London in the Twentieth Century, Paperback (October 2016)

In 1901 no other city matched London in size, wealth and grandeur. Yet it was also a city where poverty and disease were rife. In the worlds of work and popular culture, politics and crime, through war, immigration and sexual revolution, this history shows how the city shaped their lives and how it in turn was shaped by them.
