100 New York Mysteries
This was my first art book. It is a collection of photographs of the steam oozing, spewing or leaking out of the streets and sidewalks of New York City. I took the pictures with a cracked Mamiya medium-format camera while riding around NYC on my bike. The pictures themselves, as photographic prints, were both too beautiful for my taste and too banal for the few gallerists I showed them to. So a book was made. To me, the book is a silent movie flattened into pages of a novel without any words.
