Copies of THE OBSERVER now available

July 27th, 2014

In April 2005, I was the Von Hess Visiting Artist at the Borowsky Center for Publication Arts at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia where I produced The Observer. This small palm-sized book has my portrait every decade, from a girl of ten to a woman in her fifties. The eyes are cut out to reveal alternately the young eyes in the older face, then the older eyes in the younger face. It is a humorous, jarring, but truthful study of the process of aging.

10 pages 3″ x 5″ Offset printed with Duotones and varnish on acid free 120lb cover stock.
Spiral bound Edition of 300 copies $30

I recently obtained about thirty more copies of this book which I am able to distribute. Find it here at my store and use Paypal to order.

I attended the opening of this exhibition which will be on view through July 25th at Hauser & Wirth in NYC. It was great to reconnect with old friends and to see the work again. These were items shown in 1970 at the Museum of Modern Art’s Photography Into Sculpture exhibition.
