The Photographer’s Playbook

playbook

The Photographer’s Playbook came out, published by Aperture. It is a very enjoyable and well executed collection of photography assignments, ideas, projects and anecdotes from a huge variety of artists, edited by Jason Fulford and Gregory Halpern. I contributed a conceptual piece cloaked as an assignment. It is titled ‘The Death of the Photographer’.

A Dialogue in Eikon Magazine

DSC_7855

I published a short new piece titled ‘A Dialogue’ as a 4-page portfolio in Eikon Magazine.  It is based on my earlier book Mood: Potential. The piece uses the hand and eye of the reader to realize itself. It was made by invitation from Regine Ehleiter and Delphine Bedel who discuss ‘The Book as a Work as an Exhibition as a Book’ in a curated section of the magazine. Eikon Magazine, #86, Vienna, 2014.
