About the Book
As a result of a conversation with my friends I have decided to make public this book - it’s a collection of photographs of my hometown. In it I’ve tried to show you the Cookeville that I know, the Cookeville that I love.
I feel that instead of doing the promoting myself I should let others speak for me:
Kevin, how do you make Cookeville look so interesting? ‘Cause I’ve lived here for 12 years and it ain’t.
Wow, Kevin, you find some interesting hidden places in Cookeville.
Apparently there are two Cookevilles: The one that I grew up in, which is boring, and the one that Kevin lives in, which is cool.
Your photographs have the powerful effect of making the viewer want to be where-ever it is you’re shooting, seeing what you see. Having grown up there and living elsewhere for most of 8 years, I find this to be an amazing thing to do with Cookeville.
