About the Book
"Found in Kitsap" is an anthology of photos developed from a collection of over 75 found cameras, each accompanied by its own short story or poem. All the photos were found undeveloped inside of cameras that had been donated to thrift stores in Kitsap County, Washington.
Told in a variety of styles and voices, these stories and photos present a “day in the life” of the residents of this small, working-class county. Each story allows us to imagine the hopes and dreams, the fears and disappointments, the successes and loves of both the people who took the photos and those captured in them.
At age 6 Luke broke his family’s TV. They didn’t get another one. Instead he explored the woods, read encyclopedias, and built things with LEGOs. Everyday he imagined new worlds and learned to tell his owns stories. After graduating Magna Cum Laude BA/Cinema from SFSU, Luke moved to Los Angeles where he’s worked as an extra, grip, PA, camera operator, AD, producer, editor, falconer, writer and director. If he weren’t writing or making films you’d find him doing something involving snowboarding, cooking, or politics.
