Standard Edition: Independent Mysteries


NYC-based photographer Michael Magers trawled his expansive archives to create Independent Mysteries, a photo book that features striking images of intimate settings and city streets with the same complex and nuanced lens the photographer has mastered in his journalistic endeavors. Each image conveys a moment—whether seemingly emotional or innocuous—with gravitas and tenderness. There truly is a mystery to each image that’s remarkably engaging. Accompanying copy from writers, poets, musicians, tattoo artists, and others offer words that can create context or more delightful convolution.
