Book Cover

I have been taking photos in Georgia, my home state, for a number of years. I lived in Los Angeles for a long time and when I'd travel "home" I always liked photographing things I'd see. I moved back to Georgia in 2010 and since then I've been adding to a body of work that is images taken mostly in rural or small town areas in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Lousiana. I like taking smaller highways when I'm going somewhere and to pull over and photograph things that I see and find interesting. I am drawn to colorful scenes, and hand painted signs, cars for sale, produce stands, small town grocery stores, plastic funeral flowers etc. This book is a collection of images that I find celebratory. Celebrating the idea of home, which to me can be present in a place I've never been. There can be a familiarity of a space, of a smell, of the way the light comes across a place. I invite you to Rejoice with me. 

Why do I need your support?

This book is a small run edition with Aint–Bad, an independent photo book publisher. The book is priced below retail value to encourage and support the collection of photography and printed matter, this book belongs in people's hands and homes.

Risks and challenges

This project is a labor of love, and there are some unavoidable costs involved. The printing of the books and shipping from the printer in the Netherlands is the main cost and I am doing this kickstarter to try to recoup some of the upfront costs associated with making my first real book.
