Publisher's Description

RRB Publishing is pleased to announce that we will publish John Myers’ The Portraits in April 2018. Myers' work was shot throughout the 1970s in the West Midlands, and his pictures have a uniquely British feel to them. The Portraits will be the only complete collection of Myers' portraiture work ever published, and we are excited to be bringing this master of portrait and setting to a wider audience.

The Portraits is limited to 450 SIGNED and numbered copies; each trade edition copy of the book will include a SIGNED 4' × 5' original silver gelatin print of the image Giraffe, 1974.



Limited Edition of 50 SIGNED and numbered copies (with the signed Giraffe print), which will also contain a SIGNED 8' × 10' original, selenium-toned silver gelatin print of the image Nicola and Donny Osmond, 1973.
Price will increase as the edition sells out.

“Portraiture was the heart of his practice, simple slow portraiture of the kinds of people who were missed by more generic image making...Had they been seen in the magazines, these would have had just as much effect as Arbus. They’re unsettling, discomfiting in a British understated way.” — Frances Hodgson

“Very important and under appreciated” — Martin Parr

“I know that masterpieces are a thing of the past but I wonder when I look again at the portrait of the man in the cardigan (Mr. Jackson, 1974): his pensive look, the cigarette held like that (with a potential for ash on the carpet), the cardigan and the slippers, all those mesh designs and the commonplace bits and pieces in the cabinet — and that contained wood flame in the wood grain — brilliant.” — Ian Jeffrey
