The fifth Subscription Series from TBW Books (Oakland) gathers four iconic living American photographers to offer entirely new bodies of never before seen work. Reaching back 30 years and beyond, the books feel contemporary through deliberate choices in editing, sequence, and design, while continuing to celebrate their vintage origins. Each artist's vision, while individually experienced, comes together to form a powerful quartet of books.
Book 1: Mike Mandel - Boardwalk Minus Forty
Book 2: Susan Meiselas - Prince Street Girls
Book 3: Bill Burke - They Shall Take Up Serpents
Book 4: Lee Friedlander - Head
Created during the artist's time as a student at the San Francisco Art Institute, Boardwalk Minus Fortywas one of Mandel's first serious forays into what he jokingly refers to as "real photographs." Known later for his conceptual bodies of work, most notably Evidence, created with fellow artist Larry Sultan in the late 1970's and now regarded by many as one of photography’s most influential photo books, Boardwalk is a rare look back at the foundation the artist was building all along.
