Lewis Koch, Double Caution Totem (Book One), Nexus Press, Atlanta, 1993

Presented in a smart slipcase, this contemporary totem is an assemblage of photographs of natural and man-made structures from the urban environment. This is one of a series of three books, all of which comprise smaller versions of the original wall-mounted photographic works. Each original assemblage was made in an edition of 8 and was 108" (H) x 19" (W). This publication is 42" (H) x 8" (W) For further photographs by Koch:

Addenda: when Lewis came over a couple of months ago to attend an opening in my home-based gallery, Subspace, it was dark when he tried to enter my back door, he managed to walk into the screen door and wreck it!  No big deal, but he must have been feeling guilty about it, and knowing that I had posted Book One of the trilogy on my blog, he gave me the other two as compensation. I was very happy about that!  The two publications are below titled "Surplus Koan Totem: Book Two," and "Slender Thread Totem: Book Three," 1993.
