In Flagrante Two, published by Steidl December 2015
This new oversized Steidl edition of In Flagrante (first published in 1988) is a radically updated presentation, showing a single image on the right side of each double-page spread.
In Flagrante Two is strident in its belief in the primacy of the photograph, embracing ambiguities and contradictions in an unadorned narrative sequence devoid of text.
Isle Of Man Revisited, published by Steidl November 2015
Thirty years after the publication of the Isle of Man book I was in the process of preparing for my retrospective exhibition at the Museum Folkwang in Germany and started to re-examine my "Isle of Man" negatives. I hadn't had an occasion to think about this work since the first edition of the book was published. Going through these negatives again I found new images that I now liked, but at the time had overlooked or had not used for reasons that now mysitfy me. I ended up with 250 photographs that I now think of as my "Isle of Man" archive.
This new version of Isle of Man draws from that archive. The photographs in this edition keep, more or less, to the same order as the original book but I have changed some of the images, added thirty others, and printed them all larger.
