Looking at the overlooked tells a way of looking at the world. The images, all taken near Myers’ home in Stourbridge, give the feeling of a totally generic and non-specific journey, where everyday scenes and objects become the protagonists of a new and unprecedented narrative. Myers is able to make us see, to show, the things we have already seen, which we usually overlook. This volume is the sequel to The Portrait, where Mayer told us about the faces of his ‘neighbours’.

‘We pass by these totems, each day, in our quest for the exciting and the novel, and ignore the works that tell most unexpectedly of the conditions of modern life’ – John Taylor, 1979
