Publisher's Description

Now shipping in June.

"In 1981 my father started publishing the Bingo Today newspaper in Seattle. It was filled with photographs he took of bingo players and stories about the prizes they won. Advertising by local bingo halls paid the bills. My mom wrote the horoscopes. I was introduced to the world of bingo when I was eleven and my parents took me to the bingo session for kids. I won $300. Within a few days I bought the best BMX bike I could find, a red and blue Redline MXIII. It was my dream bike. I went to a custom shop and put it together piece by piece. Bingo seemed all right to me. In very little time it had brought me fortune and envy of all my friends. When I got my driver's license at sixteen, my dad gave me the job of delivering the Bingo Today to bingo halls and convenience stores all around Seattle. Ten years later I returned to Seattle to visit my parents for Christmas and decided to revisit some of the bingo halls with my camera. The bingo hall managers and regulars remembered me from my delivery days and I began making photographs for this project. Over the next seven years, I expanded the project and photographed in many other bingo halls around the United States." — Andrew Miksys

From the photography of Baxt, Tulips, and Disko.
