Publisher's Description

RRB Photobooks are pleased to present Looking at the Overlooked by John Myers. Looking at the Overlooked will be the second volume of a series of three, which will represent Myers' collected works.

“It is gratifying that The Portraits was such a success. Looking at the Overlooked presents the place where those people lived.” —John Myers

Looking at the Overlooked describes a way of encountering the world. The images, all taken within walking distance of Myers’ home in Stourbridge are scenes encountered without narrative or emotion, as if Myers were the first person to come across the places he turned his lens upon. The work is sequenced as a journey through a town, generic and not site-specific; a backdrop to the mundane and everyday that is too often seen and yet not considered as part of our visual landscape.

Looking at the Overlooked is limited to 450 SIGNED and numbered copies; each trade edition copy of the book will include a SIGNED 5" × 4" original silver gelatin print of the image The Bed, 1976.

Limited Edition of 50 SIGNED and numbered copies (with the signed The Bed print), which will also contain a SIGNED 10" × 8" original, selenium-toned silver gelatin print of the image Benjamin the Rabbit, 1975.
