/ The book features 20 duotone plates of re-photographed 1950s-era mug shots found by the artist’s friend, Mike Brodie, in an abandoned Georgia prison. Brodie gifted the photos to Schiek, who then edited the original cache of hundreds down to a select few, cropped the images to remove all official documentary references while leaving stains, staple marks, tears and other signs of age, and enlarged the prints on highly reflective chromogenic paper to imbue them with personal and cultural meaning beyond their original purpose. The book is accompanied by an introduction by acclaimed critic Vince Aletti. /
