For TIS03 - the third installment of the TIS multi-artist series - we’ve taken advantage of this eventful time in history to expand beyond the TIS collective and include new friends and fresh outlooks.
Social and political upheaval, a tumultuous election, and a crippling pandemic that’s forced the majority of the world to shelter in place: all of this has left many artists in various states of making. After months of self-isolation some photographers began to slowly venture out again, ready to see and feel this new world of ours photographically. Others took advantage of the extra hours spent at home to photograph family or to travel in time via sifting through archives; many explored new ways to work without regular access to their studio or darkroom.
Taken together, the books in TIS03 exhibit an irrepressible artistic ingenuity born of necessity. Individually, they are cohesive worlds created as provisional response to chaos and confusion.
TIS03 is twelve books by twelve artists, sold both as a box set and as individual titles.
