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. -Mark T. Wow, Kevin, you find some interesting hidden places in Cookeville. -Megan H. 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. -Richard M. 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. -Rebecca H.
