Todd Hido’s B-sides Box Set is a follow-up publication to the artist’s award-winning 2013 monograph, Excerpts from Silver Meadows. Designed to function as a companion book to that title as well as a sovereign object in its own right, B-sides Box Set comprises 50 images printed on loose cards, presented in a 2-piece lucite box. The selection includes alternate images that didn’t make it into the book, as well as variations of images that did. The collection offers a behind-the-scenes look at how Hido selects and arranges images in book form. “Making good and interesting pictures is only half of what it takes to make a memorable visual book," Hido explains. "The way one organizes images to create a narrative sequence also plays an important role in creating something that people want to pick up and take home.” This first printing of B-sides Box Set is limited to 500 numbered copies.
Wim Wenders’ photographs show us the beauty of some places in nowhere land.
“When you travel a lot, and when you love to just wander around and get lost, you can end up in the strangest spots. . . . I don’t know, it must be some sort of built-in radar that often directs me to places that are strangely quiet, or quietly strange.”
Wim Wenders—painter, actor, writer, and one of the most successful contemporary filmmakers around—has assembled a fascinating series of large-format photographs taken from 1983 to 2011 in countries all over the world. A small selection of Wenders’s photographic oeuvre, ranging from his iconic exteriors and buildings to the impressive panoramas, is offered in this set of twelve postcards.
