This event has ended.

Mast Books presents Nick Relph’s MONSTERS, co-published with Pre-Echo Press. In connection with the launch of this publication there will be a presentation of prints from Relph’s Seeing Plastic series.

MONSTERS serves as a tangential addendum to Relph’s previous book Eclipse Body & Soul Syntax. Using the same scanning process, Relph gathered 1000 images of payphone enclosures in New York and Los Angeles.

In contrast to Eclipse Body & Soul Syntax the scans in MONSTERS are more uniform, upset though they are by digital artifacts and surface interruptions: paper, stickers, paint, rust, rainwater, a hologram, reflective vinyl, screws, ketchup, plants, bird shit, electrical cable.

Relph and designer Joseph Gilmore assembled a selection of 452 images, sequentially beginning on the front cover, and ending on the back. The page numbers are accompanied by a second set of numbers which correspond to an individuated xerox copy of each image.
