I Photo Central dealer Vintage Works, Ltd. has announced the publication of its first limited edition book, which is entitled: Marcus Doyle: Night Vision/Intimacies of an Unblinking Eye.

Marcus Doyle will be signing copies during the show on Friday and Saturday nights from 5-8 p.m.
To quote Matt Damsker's essay: "The photographs of Marcus Doyle transform the familiar spaces and landscapes of the modern world into twilight zones--nearly surreal, almost alien, yet always recognizable for what they are…Doyle's large-format approach, with saturated colors that result from exposures as long as three hours, turns his unstaged tableaux into visions of exalted expectancy amidst man's tendency to trivialize.
