Click to preview 31 Details from a Photograph photo book

From The Introduction:

In July of 2010 I was taking photographs with the intention of expanding a series I was working on, and which later would be collected into book form as The Surface of the World. The present collection, 31 Details from a Photograph, derives from an image that was initially taken from that month, but unused for that series.

Many of the images included in The Surface of the World focus upon reflections as seen in urban skyscrapers. One of the intriguing elements regarding these photos is how much they appear, when looked upon, like oil paintings rather than photographs. Each photograph is essentially comprised of multiple, smaller paintings. Those images, and this collection, could then be seen as small-format abstract studies.

Artist's book 38 pages and 31 illustrations, with introduction by the artist, no pagination, images, layout, and design by the artist.
