Click to preview GREY MATTER photo book

"A veritable cornucopia of visual delights, this book has it all!" says Frank's mother about "Grey Matter."

"A tapestry of beautiful images, every page a surprise!" says Frank's sister.

"OMG! I can't believe I married this man!" says Frank's wife. Can they all be right? Decide for yourself.

One hundred forty-four black and white images culled from over thirty-five years of perception, this book brings together some of Frank's favorite works, old and new, for the first time in a single volume. "A great companion volume to last year's 'Simple Gifts.' No photographic library should be considered complete without one," says Frank.

Seriously folks, do yourself a favor and check it out!

Great compilation of work! When I look at your work, I feel your weren't capturing them but they were capturing you, and I think that is the essence.
