Originally conceived in the same format and as a companion volume to the Steidl publications Men and Women. Tom Wood met up with artist and collaborator Padraig Timoney (then living in Naples) to finalise the Men and Women book layouts in 2011. As their work was finished, retiring to a nearby hostelry, Timoney presented Wood with a “surprise” - a dummy book he had put together, the same size as Men and Women but made up of outtakes from the Photie Man book they had worked on 10 years earlier. Wood was duly knocked out by the spreads, the playfulness of the whole enterprise. However due to time limitations it was left unpublished. Now added to and re-edited to include more images and material from the past 10 years. The earliest pictures in the book go back 1974. Item #24177
