Over 75 portraits of artists, musicians, writers, and others taken by Tim McLaughlin over the past three years. The book includes a collection of found photographs and two works of fiction: "with men of progress", and "women of vision" appearing for the first time in print. An introduction explores the link between three types of portraits: found, taken, and written. Preface by noted Vancouver writer, publisher and photographer Stephen Osborne.

This is a small-run edition. The first 100 copies sold are numbered and signed by the artist.
