Strange and Singular.

Strange and Singular. Photographs by Michael Abrams. Loosestrife Editions, Tucson, 2007. 144 pp., 117 duotone and 33 four color images., 7¾x8¾".

" A journey informed by a quote from Michel Foucault… “a readiness to find strange and singular what surrounds us; a certain relentlessness to break up our familiarities and to regard otherwise the same things; a fervor to grasp what is happening and what passes; a casualness in regard to the traditional hierarchies of the important and the essential”.

This first book by Michael Abrams is an album in which the artist’s image makes only a fleeting appearance, yet whose hand touches every page."
