Independent Mysteries Hard Cover


Independent Mysteries (2020)  is the first monograph from documentary photographer Michael Magers.

In it, Magers exposes the persistent tension between connection and disconnection -- a feeling of “intimate distance” -- he grappled with while traveling to places like Japan, Haiti, and Cuba for various assignments and personal projects. Drawing on nearly a decade of work, each image can be viewed as a film-still, with little context other than light brushes of human contact, fleeting intimacy, solitude, and vulnerability. Every one of the grainy, black-and-white photographs in this book carries with it a secret to be discovered and explored.
