Book/box set finally finished!!!! - SURFACE

It has been a long journey working on this project with Trillium Press now Electric Works in San Francisco. Kris Shapiro has done a beautiful job printing for this project, I really appreciate how sensitve to color she was/is. The boxed set consisits of twelve 12"sq prints from my surface series. The clamshell box that they are held in has a blind emboss with the title and my name-crafted by Arnold Martinez in South San Francisco. Lisa Hostetler, assistant curator of photography at the Milwaukee Art Museum, was kind enough to write a statement for the boxed set and Richard Lang graciously shared an excerpt from his poem, "Smooth Water." I couldn't believe how beautiful it all turned out - 2 1/2 years paid off! The book is printed in a edition of 10 with 1 artist proof and 2 publisher proofs.
