About the Book
This book is not traditional.... because it is large, experimental, and it is unclear to the author what he has done.
What is clear though, is that digital photography, internet broadband communication, and on demand short run affordable offset printing have changed photography book publishing forever.
The immediacy, relatively low cost, ease of technical precision, the democratic imperative of digital still photography and publish on demand technology have changed photography to where we have an instrument of the eye that closes the temporal gap between imagination and expressive product ever closer to what has always existed between the ear and music making machines.
This work is the author's intuitive use of these new tools to create what was not practical for him and many others before: a self published creative work that "plays" a larger portion what his eye "hears" unimpeded by third party editors, curators, venues, and publishers' financial concerns.
