Product Description 
  
This first book by Michael Abrams is an album in which the artist‘s image make‘s only a fleeting appearance, yet whose hand touches every page. A journey informed by a quote form Michel Foucault...

Abrams sifts through the trove of discarded images that define our past and re-edits them for a new purpose. He finds the small truths imbedded in these nearly forgotten images. His goal -to provoke, question or demand reconsideration of our established assumptions.
