Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
18 years ago, we began constructing assemblages—many dealt with social issues concerning human rights, politics, religion, sexuality, and stereotypes. On a lighter note, we also made assemblages dealing with Mickey Mouse, Elvis, Marilyn and our relationship. This book is in 2 parts, the 1st part is pinhole images of our assemblages, the 2nd part is lens images of the assemblages with a catalogue describing the assemblages. All pinhole images were made with a 1-1/2" Leonardo pinhole camera.
