These five pictures appear in my forthcoming book Spirits - 15 years of photographs, which you can pre-order here.I have no memory of taking the photograph of the dresses below but something tells me it was in Xela, Guatemala.
The entire contents of the book are a closely guarded secret. Not even the NSA knows. Not even SNOWDEN knows. But I am planning a leak to Assange. As a PR stunt. A burst of outrage on my part will follow.
The picture of the snowy railroad tracks was taken in Chicago; the wife of the miner who died in a 1968 accident (top), in Barroteran, Coahuila. The balloon-and-silicon picture below comes from the series Ladies' Bar, made in Guadalajara. The comfy chair picture comes from Peoria, Illinois and the pier shot from Puerto de la Libertad, El Salvador.
Unlike the previous book, which had a distinct feel to it that spanned across all the photographs, this is going to be an eclectic group of pictures from many times and many places.
No more previews after this one, folks. You'll have to wait for the book. Thanks to those of you who have already placed orders. And thanks to those of you who are thinking about it, and particularly those who are reaching for their wallets. We love you most of all.
