The latest iteration of a project extending back more than a decade, BWAY WORD SLAW 2022 is a collection of more than 3686 photographs of four-letter words seen along Broadway in Manhattan. Collected during the spring and summer of 2022 the words are arranged into 14 geographic ‘episodes,’ documenting the length of Broadway from Bowling Green near the southern tip of Manhattan to Marble Hill, next to, but not legally the Bronx.

 

The book is comprised of 104 photo pages each with a grid of word images, a smaller collection of images of faces posted or presented in each area, with both overlying a photo collage of neighborhood scenes. Overall, the book seeks to document the overwhelming sea of words and faces and images through which New Yorkers swim every day. Also included are two short anonymous essays about the Word Slaw project and the background of creator BURST 387.

 

The book is a cloth-covered codex, hand-bound, with 104 studio-made pigment prints, in a cloth-covered slipcase. Both book and case have a unique pigment print appended on the front face. Prints are produced using archival pigment inks on Hannemühle 100% cotton 220gsm paper.

Book size: 10.75 x 8.625 x 1 inches
