Brian Kanagaki’s Favorite Book from 2019

Looking at the Overlooked by John Myers.   Published by RRB Photobooks.

I would say to the average viewer there is nothing special or interesting about these photos, but that's what makes the title Looking at the Overlooked so apt. Even Myers himself calls these 'boring photos'. But I think there is something in Myers' photos that we all strive for, he has a keen way of just capturing the moment without comment or influence. His work has hopefully brought attention to the overlooked beauty of the world that we each walk through every day.
