Dead Man's Hand 
By Jonah Samson
Self-published, 2013

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2013 by Erin Azouz
Selected as a Book of the Week by Antone Dolezal

"While visibly alluding to the film noir genre, Dead Man's Hand is a series of photographs and collected ephemera that reference the artist's fascination with photographic history from the middle of the 20th century, particularly crime photography and pin-ups. The images are fictions, painstakingly crafted as scale-models, then carefully lit and photographed in the studio. In order to lend a feeling of authenticity, the artist photographed the sets with a vintage Speed Graflex camera, the same 4x5 camera that was used by press photographers at the time. The original photographs were then manually altered to appear as actually press photos, with painted edits and crop marks. The additional content in the book are found 'pin-ups' and actual clippings from vintage detective magazines. The text of the book is a piece of fiction written by Sheila Heti, which is presented as a type-written letter. The book is housed in a hand-made linen box, and was produced in an edition of 200."the publisher

About the Limited Edition:
A special limited edition of 10 box sets includes a hand-painted photograph.

By Stephen Gill
Nobody in association with Archive, 2014

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2014 by WassinkLundgren

"Stephen Gill photographs are devoid of sentiment or affectation rather than showing the pigeon in our world, they take us into theirs. The lens noses in under bridges, squeezes through cracks and scopes out crannies. These are images that bestow on the despised flying rats that oft-trumpeted but seldom realised attribution: their dignity: here are pigeons making their lives in a natural landscape, for, whatever else humans may be, we are animals too, and as such our buildings are analogous to the earthworks of termites, and our bridges to the dams of beavers. Its this inversion of the anthropocentric view that makes Gills images so compelling that, and another revelation; for, fluffed-up and blinking, in the dust and the grime and the rust and rime, we see those mythical beings: the young pigeons. I suspect its because weve entered this otherworldly realm that we find these juveniles to be arousing not of pity, but a grudging respect far from being scroungers, or undeserving poor, these doughty birds survive and even thrive, despite barbs and more barbs of outrageous human fortune. They are, like the urban foxes, the economic migrants of the animal world: forced into the cities to scratch a living as best they may, and before we condemn them we would do well to ask ourselves this question: would we do as well were the tables to be turned?"—Will Self
