Photobooks

A sample of photobooks I have self-published and designed. For these books I have helped oversee the production, editing, sequencing, and design while working either directly with the artist or publisher.

Midwest Sentimental by Nathaniel Grann (Self-Published, 2016)

A series about the notion of family and its relationship to family. Constructing and fabricating scenarios to photography myself and my family members in, I revisit shared memories and create new ones along the way.

Canals by Keith Lane (Empty Stretch, 2014)

Dai Kincho by Brett Davis (Empty Stretch, 2014)

Davis, using an interesting technique to create his images and pulling from a wide source of Japanese influences, constructs a tale that is both explicit and soft-spoken about the troubles of finding ones own sexuality within a culture that isn't ready to address it themselves.

Burnish by Isabelle Evertse (Empty Stretch, 2012)

Burnish is a record of a girl and her father, of the words that might or might not have been said, and the intrepid expectations of how things should have been. Letters that once were cherished and loathed, have now yellowed with time as the rough slowly becomes smooth. Quiet gentle whispers build as a girl tries to connect with someone who is both here and not. View the full body of work here.
