these birds walk - TBW books

Some days getting mail- real mail- is the most exciting part of my day. I was pleased to receive the third book of my subscription from these birds walk. Noon by Marianne Mueller is a provoking series in and of itself but also as a companion to the Hido book OHIO that was previously mailed from this series.

After focusing the camera on herself and her surroundings, Marianne Mueller presents Noon, a provocative exploration of the abstracted human form and its myriad connections to the objects around us. Marianne Mueller was born in Zurich in 1966. She graduated from the School of Art & Design Zurich in 1991 and currently teaches at Zurich University of the Arts. She has had more than 25 solo exhibitions in Europe and North America, and has received numerous awards and grants, including the Swiss Art Award in 2002. Previous books include The Proper Ornaments, published by Edition Patrick Frey in 2008, The Flock, published by Steidl in 2005, Standing Still/Traveling Slowly, published by Electric Mermaid in 2002, and A Part of My Life Photographs, published by Scalo in 1998. Marianne enjoys falling asleep and smoking cigarettes (not simultaneously).
