“A road trip to the heart of pre-millennial, communal fervour; Lizard Point '99 is a textual and photographic exploration of a young man's last few days of being wild.
By a chance inter-generational encounter, Jerry O'Driscoll's documentary photography of the Total Solar Eclipse event has been un-earthed and curated by Luke Overin - amounting to a glorious, monochromatic ode to illegal raves, fuggy campervans, and a very English kind of communal identity.
Whilst the photographs in the book recount a specific and special time in O’Driscoll’s life, the supporting interview is forward thinking in its messaging and presents a rallying cry to a fragmentary society tip-toeing cautiously towards a post-pandemic future.”
