  • HOLMES Andrew
    Big Pic Box

    [14] pamphlet with introductory text and large colour images + 18 large colour plates. Large square 4to in presentation box with decorated colour title on front. Box is a little dusty with small nick on lower edge else very good copy. The 18 plates are each composed of nine Polaroid images that can be assembled in any arrangement to form a composite work, called Nine Times. The images on these plates were the most controversial of Holmes' work at the time of publication, in both form and content: unlikely combinations of fragments of contemporary living -- urban waste, trucks, flowers, animals and images culled from the TV screen.
