My first artist’s book is now available from Printed Matter.

In Necrology, forty-six photo portraits torn decades ago from obituaries in the New York Times are arranged in slyly humorous juxtapositions. Stripped of context beyond the original bare-bones photo captions, the faces of the dead are seen anew, their shared characteristics uncannily apparent. The book ends with microbiographies of each person, hinting at both the richness and the arbitrariness of human lives.
