From the publisher: "This collection is our third collaboration with the remarkable Joseph Mills. An artist of unique vision and exceptional skill, Mills is influenced in particular by the Dada and Surrealist movements, and by his personal experience of psychosis. He describes his earliest artistic accomplishment as 'simply surviving through creativity.' Starting out as a photographer, a snow-induced confinement indoors kicked off a second creative practice: collage. Now, 35 years later, these two ostensibly different bodies of work continue along simultaneously parallel and overlapping paths. Our first monograph, Inner City, features Mills's street photography while the second, The Loves of the Poets, is devoted to collage. In this gorgeous new book we present silk-screened images, a medium relatively new to Mills but one he deploys with his own inimitable genius. Anarch is fascinating, beautiful and truly unique.
Joseph Mills has lived and worked in Washington, DC for many years. His work has been widely exhibited and can be found in numerous private and museum collections."
