BETWEEN BOTH SHORES ver 2.0
A Glance Across the Landscapes of America
by The photography of Stewart Isbell
This book is an ongoing collection of photographs taken over the last decade while traveling around the continental United States. Sometimes the trips were for work & some were my own personal discoveries. During all of it, I wanted to document what I was experiencing and to show where I was with the same sense of grandeur, curiosity, or humor that I happened to find before me. This is the first time that I've stopped to pull together all the images from those trips and present them as one body of work. It's been fulfilling, but a surprisingly difficult task, trying to step back from my photos & the experiences that went along with them and see these past years collected into a single idea.
Between Both Shores.... is my look at who & what we are as a country... From Seattle to The Florida Keys, From Maine to the Salton Sea, it's been an interesting journey exploring our geography, nature, architecture, cultures, religion, politics, and life... There truly is a lot of diversity in this country, and I hope I'm able to show what I've experienced in a way that will intrigue you as much as it has me over the years. Thanks a lot, Stew
Stewart found his interest in photography at the young age of 15 while growing up in Little Rock, Arkansas. He was always seen spending his time living in the darkroom, working on the yearbook or school newspaper. Those formative years solidified his goals of having career in photography. A few years later, he loaded up and followed his dreams to New York City to study at The School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. There he recieved his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in photography back in 2001. He began to shoot commercial assingments early on during his second year in school and things have taken off from there. These days Stewart finds himself living in Brooklyn with his wonderful wife Suzanne and little dog Sonya. His love has always been portraiture, but it's only a small portion of what has intrigued him about photography. The many personal projects he is always working on, mostly about his travels or life, always keeps him busy inbetween assignments.
