There are a handful of books in my library that have helped define my love of photography over the past three decades — forming a multidirectional bridge between processes, aesthetics, deliberateness, and happy accidents. This image combines the first words that appear in four of those books:

  • This is Photography: Its Means and Ends — Thomas H. Miller & Wyatt Brummitt (1945)
  • Selections 1: From Polaroid Collection — Eelco Wolf & L. Fritz Gruber (1982)
  • Composites: Computer Generated Portraits — Nancy Burson, Richard Carling & David Kramlich (1986)
  • Zone System Manual: How To Previsualize Your Pictures — Minor White (1968)
