Only the fires say forms a visual poem. The assonant and dissonant impressions (hot and cold, full and void, slow and fast) are prompted by subtle transitions. The idea of combustion is suggested in the work’s very first image. It therefore introduces a leitmotiv that runs throughout the project, the fires announcing the end of a season. Only the fires say is Alan Eglinton's first photobook, published by Poursuite Editions.
