RRB Photobooks are pleased to present Looking at the Overlooked by John Myers. Looking at the Overlooked will be the second volume of a series of three, which will represent Myers collected works.
Looking at the Overlooked describes a way of encountering the world. The images, all taken within walking distance of Myers’ home in Stourbridge are scenes encountered without narrative or emotion, as if Myers were the first person to come across the places he turned his lens upon. The work is sequenced as a journey through a town, generic and not site specific, a backdrop to the mundane and everyday that is too often seen and yet unconsidered as part of our visual landscape.
