I wanted to give an update that there are only about 30 or so copies left of Savage, Dixie, Slaughterville, so if you were thinking of getting one now’s a fine time. Email me directly to get a copy, or Dashwood Books and Printed Matter in NYC are carrying them if you prefer to buy one in person.
Schilling stuff like this isn’t my preferred schtick, but I would love to get the last stack of these out and into people’s homes, so send me an email and I’ll get you one.
As promised, here’s a slideshow of the entirety of this new book.
I’m excited about this new book, since it represents for me both a confluence of old ideas and also a growth into new ones, but beyond that I don’t know what to say about it in particular w/o betraying it, so I’ll leave the rest up to you. A slideshow of all the images will be up on my portfolio site and here when it’s done in the next week or so, in the meantime a few pics. Finally, there are only 100 copies of this, so let me know if you want one.

This is a fun book of photographs I shot while at the beach this summer. There are 17 5×7″ B&W silver RC prints mounted in a white 8.5×11″ children’s craft book hand stenciled front and back in acrylic and shipped in a clear protective sleeve.
Each is completely unique and will be signed and numbered.
I’ll make up to 25 + 1 A/P in this edition.
Price is $45 + s/h. If you’d like to order one please email me.
So you can see, here are all 17 prints in it:
I shared some of these previously when I first began them; they’re photographs from walks this winter in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. I liked them enough that I’m doing a small final series called “My Prospect.”
Be Afraid, My Friend is a video and book I shot this past winter on NYC streets using a Kodak Zi8 pocket video camera.
Video: Be Afraid, My Friend, 2011, 3:38 min, by Graeme Mitchell with music by Julian Tulip’s Licorice.
The book is 71 pages, 7.4×9.5,” softcover, perfect bound, $24. It doesn’t correspond exactly w/ the video, but it is close.
There were 4 portfolios in the original edition of this. They were prints hand mounted in leather albums. I still think they are beautiful as artifacts, but they were stupidly expensive and time consuming to make. Moreover, only 4 people have them, and I’m pretty sure they’re not being treated as coffee table books. I wanted a simple small copy for myself to have around, and also since doing the Occurrences newsprint edition, I had a number of people ask if I’d ever do an inexpensive version of Unreal City, so I decided to revisit it and do this.
The print-on-demand press quality leaves a lot to be desired, but right now utilizing any tangible medium is good I think. Plus, I think that populace mainstream sort of lo-fi medium is cool, makes the work more eye-level and less precious. Needless to say these aren’t to be shilled as rare or valuable – they’re intended to be enjoyed and shared.
Recently I shared a new series of photographs called Occurrences. This is the newsprint edition. There are 1,000 copies of this.
It’s approx 11×14.” 56 pages.
Email if you would like one, $8 signed and shipped in the US.
They should also be available at Dashwood Books in NYC.
Hopefully this will be the last time I mention this project – I’m over it, so to speak – but as I promised in the post of the slideshow of this work, the final of the Unreal City edit is a limited edition portfolio, and having just finished the Artist Proof I wanted to share some pics. It’s 50 pigment prints (approx 10×6.5″) mounted in a 12×12″ album of black calfskin leather. All the materials used are archival and the rest of that good stuff. They are signed and numbered on the inside cover. The edition size will be four, plus one Artist Proof (the A/P will not be sold).
And please excuse the picture quality – my only digi cam is my phone.
Okay, moving on then now.
