Looking at the Overlooked describes a way of encountering the world. The images, all taken within walking distance of Myers’s home in Stourbridge are scenes encountered without narrative or emotion, as if Myers were the first person to come across the places he turned his lens upon. The work is sequenced as a journey through a town, generic and not site-specific, a backdrop to the mundane and everyday that is too often seen and yet not considered as part of our visual landscape.
Looking at the Overlooked is available in a limited edition of 450 signed and numbered copies, each containing a 5 × 4” original silver gelatin print of ‘Bed, 1976’, which is signed and dated to the verso.
