I am very thrilled to announce the publication of my hand made artist photobook Pine Lake. Thus post is not intended to be a book review, as I need to let others provide more objective assessments. This is just blatant self promotion.
Pine Lake is sequenced as a semi-fictional story about an American multi-generational summer rite, the fishing trip.
As to how this project came about, it started with my recently discovered family photographs of my grandfathers fishing, a passion of which was unknown and totally foreign to me. Thus the small, worn photographs I found became talismans for the lost memories and stories of my family. This has led me to create this artist book to tell a story of what might have been. Pine Lake is another of my on-going series that investigates memory and its preservation.
