John Myers' work was shot throughout the 1970s in Great Britain's West Midlands, and his pictures have a uniquely British feel to them. "The Portraits" will be the only complete collection of Myers' portraiture work ever published and brings this master of portrait and setting to a wider audience.

"The Portraits" is limited to 450 copies; each copy of the book will include a 5x4 inch original silver gelatin print. In addition, copies 1-50 will also contain a 10x8” silver gelatin print.

“Portraiture was the heart of his practice, simple slow portraiture of the kinds of people who were missed by more generic image making...Had they been seen in the magazines, these would have had just as much effect as Arbus. They’re unsettling, discomfiting in a British understated way.” - Frances Hodgson

“very important and under appreciated” - Martin Parr

“I know that masterpieces are a thing of the past but I wonder when I look again at the portrait of the man in the cardigan (Mr. Jackson, 1974): his pensive look, the cigarette held like that (with a potential for ash on the carpet), the cardigan and the slippers, all those mesh designs and the commonplace bits and pieces in the cabinet – and that contained wood flame in the wood grain – brilliant.” - Ian Jeffrey
