Occurrences is a new book of 44 photographs. It is 58pg in length, sized 11×8.5,” printed on an archival acid free matte paper, and bound in linen hardcover. This hardcover edition will be extremely limited at 6 signed and numbered books and one A/P. However, an edition of 6 isn’t many, so I may do a newsprint edition later.
This quick little video shows the A/P. There will be a few very minor changes made to the finals, but nothing major.
And a big thanks to, Aaron Binaco for the help editing this work.
Update: this edition is sold out.
It’s rare anymore that I take the time to mention inspirations like a movie, but I was so taken back by Hiroshi Teshigahara’s The Women in the Dunes that I could not not share it. I guess it was a relatively big art house hit in the 60s and 70s. and the story itself is a beautiful parable on existence, absurdity, reality, meaning, and struggle in the existential vain of that era (Beckett, Camus, Sartre), and while I think it remains as relevant today philosophically, the truly mesmerizing aspect of this film is the cinematography by Hiroshi Segawa. It is incredible, inspired, and along w/ Soy Cuba and The Third Man, one of the most beautifully photographed black and white films I’ve ever seen. From the stark nature of light and shadow, to the visceral treatment of the human form alongside the nearly surreal visual personification of the sand itself, the film comes alive in the filming. Four stars and some thumbs and what have you.
