As a follow up to the follow up Steidl book last year, the Landesgallery in Linz and the SK Stiftung in Cologne have released a slimed down version in German which will accompany the show around Europe. It has been published in the Edition Fotohof and contains a selection of the original works as well as a selection of contemporary photographers working in the spirit of the NT.

I noticed that Fotohof doesn't have it listed yet in the new releases, it was hot-off-the-press only a few days ago, so if you want one, let me know and I will forward your request to the right place.

I'm excited to have work in the shadow of a very inspirational and formative show. For me it is a circle coming back around, due to my time in the 80's as a student of Bill Jenkins, the curator of the original NT exhibition.

After Linz it will travel to the SK Stiftung in Cologne.
