(SOLD): SOTHERN, Scott. Lowlife.
(London): Stanley Barker, 2011. First edition. Oblong octavo. Unpaginated. An ultimately sad, and brutal view of a vicious slice of the American pie. Sothern takes us on a gritty, black and white photographic journey though the motels and back alleys of street prostitution where women, hawk their souls for the price of a Big Mac and a fix. Sothern is not merely a photographic voyeur but Vollmann style immersed himself in the culture and his accompanying text is both moving, and a compelling piece of work. A very good copy in wrappers. Published in an edition of 200 copies.
