About the Book
As a fine art photographer, I have always been eager to chronicle my everyday experiences -- whether banal or life-affirming -- both visually and textually. These encounters form the backbone of the book, which includes colorful bite-sized anecdotes with cameos from Anthony Weiner and Terry Richardson, along with an assortment of other characters I have met along the way: a new roommate, a boss, a kid I babysat, a guy at a party with no eyebrows. One memory involves a man who suggests a first date at a Lego store; in another, a man tells me he could write poetry on my forehead.
These memories highlight distinctive features from the decade of 2008-2018. Everything in this book has happened; everything was said or was overheard. Each spread within the book contains a surreal self-portrait, offering the reader an abstract illustration of the text.
