This remarkable collection comprises 55 colour plates, previously unpublished due to artistic restrictions imposed during the Communist era. This unique body of work is introduced by an explanatory text, in which the photographer discusses the meaning of these beautiful and intriguing images. A detailed biography of the artist is also included. 'Yesterday's sandwich' embodies Mikhailov's role as artist, documentary photographer and social observer demonstrating his rich imagination and practical solutions for survival in an unstable society. Mikhailov has received wide critical acclaim and his work has been exhibited around the world. He was awarded the Citibank Photography Award in 2001."--Book jacket.Mikhailov, Boris is the author of 'Yesterday's Sandwich', published 2009 under ISBN 9780714848563 and ISBN 0714848565.
