TBW Books is an independent photography book publishing company founded in 2006 by Paul Schiek. In addition to our yearly four-book Annual Series collections, TBW Books releases a tightly curated offering of monographs and special editions.

'Family Car Trouble' plays with the form of the novel, both material and narrative, to illustrate the inner workings of the photographer. The recordings document arrival and departure as well as the maintenance of a difficult 1993 Volvo 940 station wagon.
