"… Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light
And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”
- D. Thomas

My new book “HOME.” is finally ready for a wide launch. For purchase information, go here.
HOME. is an 80-page book measuring 9.5×13 inches. The digitally printed piece, unbound and held together with a rubber band, contains four hand screen-printed spreads, 12 pages of inserts and 54 images. The images, made over the last two years in Wyoming, the Faroe Islands and the Philippines, are combined with essays, quotes and an adorable interview with the photographer’s 10-year-old nephew all exploring connection to place and what it means to belong.
