Upcoming Release: Distant Echoes
Distant Echoes began as a photo essay of the nighttime world and the people in it. Not simply images of the physical, this is an attempt to capture what happens “when you climb inside what creates the sleeplessness”. That question led to something more than a simple collection of photographs. As the project evolved, it took on a different character and I began to add prose or poetry where it fit. The resulting combination hopefully brings the concept to life in a way that neither medium alone would.
first second third proof of Distant Echoes is currently in transit and barring the need for major reworking, it should be released in late-April or early-May of 2010. Watch this space for further news!
