Each year TBW Books (Oakland) curates four individual books by artists they feel are making compelling work within the medium of photography. While each book is unique they are designed and edited to work together in conveying a cohesive visual theme. This is reflected not only in the image content but by the design of the books as a whole. Subscription Series No.4 features:
Book #1: Christian Patterson - Bottom of the Lake
Book #2: Alessandra Sanguinetti - Sorry, Welcome
Book #3: Raymond Meeks - Erasure
Book #4: Wolfgang Tillmans - Utoquai
Working from a unique perspective and restrained stylistic viewpoint, Patterson continues to build on the visual narrative that propelled him to the forefront with his earlier book, Redheaded Peckerwood. In Bottom of the Lake, he revisits his Wisconsin hometown to reveal a dark, cold, and beer soaked world that looks unmistakably his. Bottom of The Lake would later go on to act as the groundwork for a larger body of work of the same name published by Walter Konig in 2015.
