Boris Mikhailov: Yesterday’s Sandwich (Phaidon, 2008)

This is the first book on the famous Russian photographer Boris Mikhailov’s fascinating early body of work entitled the Superimposition series. In this series from the late 60s to early 70s, he has overlayed two colour slides, creating fascinating “sandwiches”, i.e beautifully composed tableaux of glamorous naked women, surreal urban landscapes and strange scenes of everyday Soviet life.
