Publisher's Description
TBW Books is pleased to release its newest publication, dead men don't look like me by Paul Schiek. The book features 20 duotone plates of men re-photographed from 1950s-era mug shots found by the artist’s friend Mike Brodie in an abandoned Georgia prison. Brodie gifted the mug shots to Schiek, who then edited the original cache of hundreds down to a select few, cropped the images to remove all official documentary references while leaving stains, staple marks, tears and other signs of age, and enlarged the prints on highly reflective chromogenic paper to imbue them with personal and cultural meaning beyond their original purpose. The book is accompanied by an introduction by acclaimed critic Vince Aletti.
