Utilizing an unconventional design layout in which imagery has been dropped in with a complete disregard for page breaks and centerfolds, this compendium quickly establishes itself as something other than a straightforward photo book.
Tomorrow’s Man, Lynn Valley 9, combines familiar imagery from Pierson’s vast repertoire—portraits, vintage ‘Physique’ magazines, celebrity promo shots, and oddball ephemera—alongside work from an eclectic range of contributors such as David Carrino, Florence Derive, Alex Jovanovich, Dan McCarthy, Ryan Sullivan, Evan Whale, and others. The unusual design and diverse imagery presents Pierson in way never seen before and shows off his skill as an inventive editor.
Includes a short story by Veralyn Behenna entitled The Lobster.
