“If you know how to do what I do you can make anyone forget why they’re there, and when you reach that moment all kinds of secrets reveal themselves.”
Published by Reel Art Press, ‘NOT JUST PICTURES’, is a 320 page monograph dedicated to my 30 year career as a photographer. The book contains over 250 images and 60 pieces of written text that document, catalogue, explain and enlighten on the subject of what it means to have pursued this life. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, sometimes painful, always honest. If you want them to lay themselves open to you then you have to accept you must lay yourself open to them.
