Plastics By Michael James Fox
Heavy Time is a publishing collaboration between Rob Cordiner, Ed Davis and Todd Jordan focusing on artist publications and exhibitions.

New York photographer Michael James Fox’s debut artist book Plastics takes a very different vantage on this most complex of materials and ideas. Drawing on two distinct, though interlocked, bodies of work, the book not only recasts the humble plastic bag via the lens of the color-drenched still life but also via that of the veiled and abstracted urban landscape.
Michael James Fox is a New York-based photographer whose wide-ranging practice is influenced by an interest in painting and sculpture. His analog photographs explore both the documentary tradition and the more surreal moments that appear in life.
