Nonymous photography has a magic all of its own. The intriguing images assembled here by collector and curator Robert Flynn Johnson are all mysterious, but their appeal is undeniable. Richly produced and with subtle tonalities marking their age, over 220 photographs showcase the work of photographers whose identities have been lost in time. Complete with an introduction by bestselling author Alexander McCall Smith, this follow-up to Robert Flynn Johnson’s widely acclaimed Anonymous is a publication that – in taking in birth, marriage, death, disease, hope, glory, despair and a plethora of other emotions, events and human states besides – will capture the imagination of any reader.
