Slightly Dangerous celebrates forty years of photography by John Ogden, and provides a cypher to his body of work. It is important to occasionally look in the rear vision mirror while hurtling headlong into the future, and Ogden’s thoughtful work reminds us what is lost in the rush. 

The foreword to Slightly Dangerous is by Tim Page, one of the world’s best-known war photographers. His career began in 1964, recording the start of the civil war in Laos. By coincidence, Ogden would find himself in Laos a decade later recording the last days of that war. Tim’s exploits in Vietnam were inspiration for the Dennis Hopper character in Apocolypse Now. Here is some of what Tim has to say about Slightly Dangerous: “This is a life well travelled of a baby boomer who surfs an existential path across six decades, waxing the best of nostalgia against the odds that are self mitigated by the excesses of those times. It is a heritage of the hippest, most gonzo ‘down-under’ attitudes, rendered by images we all wish we had snapped. As if Hunter S. Thompson and Richard Neville shuffled photo cards with Robert Frank’ian images throughout the deck.”

REVIEWS:

AUTHOR SHARES MUSINGS ON THE RISKY SIDE OF LIFE

This book is a trip – in the classic use of the word. It is local author and photographer John Ogden at his desk writing his very personal musings on life, love and all the other bits and pieces of the human experience. His story is of a path many of us have crossed, if not travelled a fair distance, and his photographs are eclectic and striking. If you are of the right age you might have "been there, done that" in the very places he speaks of – Bali, Southeast Asia, Europe, the bush, and raw, untouched coastlines of Oz.
