On May 12, contemporary art gallery Hauser & Wirth presented an exhibition of the Tertium Quid collection of vintage press photographs, curated by Murray, on the occasion of the launch of the Tertium Quid book, published by August Editions.

Now you can view the entire collection online at TertiumQuid.net and even purchase the photographs themselves, available as pairs. If you’d like to make an appointment to view specific pairs, please write to us at info@mossbureau.com.

Still want the book? It’s now available everywhere! Just kidding, it’s limited edition. But you can find it, including signed copies, on mossPop and Amazon.
