First batch has sold out. There are 68 remaining copies up for grabs, which are in production as we speak. Estimated arrival in about 1 week. The entire $37 you spend on this book will go directly towards film and print costs of the next volume in the series. This is not a for-profit project ... it is being sold at cost in an effort to create for the sake of creating, and to share a perspective and world view that you might not have gotten a chance to view otherwise.
The first stop on this journey, the subject of this first book, took me half way around the world. Through my two favorite photo genres, environmental portraiture and landscape work, I wish to share with you faces and scenes that make up the world we live in. Imagery that may be entirely unfamiliar to you. I execute this through exploring a mixture of unique events; from memorable one-time adventures with strangers, to participation in or documentation of less than legal activities, as well as capturing important mass events at the ground level. Brief historical tidbits coupled with socioeconomic and political commentary make up much of this written in this photographic journal of mine. The goal is to span select corners of the globe in future editions.
Java, Indonesia, the subject of the first volume, was perfect in that it reignited my view that the concept of community is still alive and well. The landscape is amazing, and our fellow human beings that reside there are worth learning about and celebrating. Our world is a beautiful place, and many of the people in it are wonderful. Cheers to art, humanity, and this gorgeous planet.
This entire book was captured entire with two of my favorite film cameras. All of the film stock was hand developed by me, scanned, and spotted. The book layout and printing took me all year. The trip spanned 745 miles through Java over the course of 10 days (only 6 days on the ground shooting after travel time). Im proud to bring you this large bit of creative energy. I hope that it inspires you to open up you schedule to make way for passion projects of your own. Life is short and there are memories and art to be made. There is no better time then now.
