Publisher's Description

The images in Tones of Dirt and Bone were made between 2004 and 2006, with a Polaroid camera and Time Zero film. Brodie used the characteristics and limitations inherent to this type of camera and film to his advantage. The portraits he made are further enhanced by the peculiar color palette of the film. Due to the restriction of manual focus and expensive film, that came only ten sheets to a box, each image feels deliberate and precious.

About the Limited Editions:

Limited Edition 1 is a first edition of Tones of Dirt and Bone signed by Brodie and offered in a slipcase. The edition is limted to 200 copies.

Limited Edition 2 includes a signed first edition book, the slipcase and two signed Kodak F Surface 8 x 8” C-Type prints. The images are from the same body of work but were intentionally withheld from the book and selected by Brodie to be included only in the limited release of the book. 

The slipcase for both limited editions is screenprinted onto a hearty 72pt. chipboard with die-cut window on the inside cover. This edition brings together elements of Brodie's hand written notes and images from the book to create a unique package that embodies his earliest works and TBW Book's own affinity for simple materials and refined design.

Prints that come with the Limited Edition: 

Imperfect copy has moderate corner bump.
