Edited by Johan Kugelberg and Ryan Richardson, Sounds of Two Eyes Opening is a narrative of Southern California chiaroscuro: all the shots of punks and bands and clubs are dark swatches of blacks and grays with brief illuminations of white skin, bringing about a general claustrophobic cul-de-sac feeling. These images sit in contrast to the wide open endlessness of Spot’s beach photographs: beauty, youth and body worship, white teeth, big hair, the eternal trilogy of sun/sand/sea, the promise of the unbroken horizon.
Sounds of Two Eyes Opening is presented as a hardbound, 272 page book, printed on matte art paper, with 4-color black-and-white printing, a lay flat binding. Copies purchased from record stores come with a limited edition silk screened 7″ vinyl record with art by Ed Templeton.
