“...there are images in this book that I just cannot see being made...ever, let alone when they were And THEY WORK... How does one come up with taking those images?” - Brad Feuerhelm
Drawing from all three of Myers’ previous books published by RRB Photobooks, The Guide is the best of The Portraits, Looking at the Overlooked and The End Of Industry combined with Myer’s unique prose, providing the only definitive answer to Feuerhelm’s question. Myers demonstrates his remarkable self-awareness with a wry wit in describing his pictures, like the best of teachers he is neither dry nor academic but draws the reader into conversation.
The Guide is very much a photobook, its large format gives Myers’ images the size and space they deserve. Each story stands on its own page among its companion images, allowing the text to be dipped into at will as the eye takes in the rich visuals.
Also featured in The Guide are 5 previously unpublished images, including two rare self portraits contemporaneous with the rest of Myers’ work. The Guide
is a window into the man himself, these new images adding visual context to Myers’ words.
The Guide is due to be published 1st April 2021, the first edition includes 50 copies accompanied by a 10x8” signed and limited silver-print. All pre order copies include a signed postcard of Mr Jackson, 1973.
