Photographs, letter press
"Photographs of paths and places from the Thousand Palms oasis, the monarch butterfly preserve, the gardens of my own neighborhood, the Salton Sea, and a springtime trip to Holland are gathered together in Twelve Quartets. Even in such distinct locations, I found pictures that speak to one another. In fact, I am often looking to make the same picture again and again, like a musician improvising on a theme."
