I’m anxious to get off the island for a while. A month to be more precise. Planes, trains and automobiles starting in the morning - will be in Syracuse, at Light Work, on Tuesday afternoon.
Grateful for this opportunity.
Thanks to everyone who pre-ordered a copy of The Last Road North over the past few days! I decided today, since the books won’t be out until later this year, to mail small prints of ‘Kevin’ with notes of appreciation.
Pre-order signed copies HERE..

Heather and Jeff, taking a breather during our paddle across Yakutat Bay.
Our trip out to the coast this past week was spectacular. There is something about carrying everything you need on your back for a week, to focus your efforts when you return home. I’m back in the studio this morning - tired, but ready to take on the world.
More snapshots from the trip to come later, and new work and news.
I’m catching a flight in the morning for a thin strip of coast between Cordova and Yakutat. Dea and I are continuing a trip we started last year on the Lost Coast here in Southeast Alaska - walking the beach and fording rivers for eight days. No phone or internet, just reflection, endlessly crashing waves and bears.
To go with the radio silence here, the above photo is the first from a new project, Latency
Another picture from, friend, Dennis Witmer. He needs support to self-publish a book of Alaskan Landscapes, which will feature a forward by Robert Adams.
"When I study Witmer’s pictures I think of pictures from the Hubble telescope. They document the same cold—nature’s apparent indifference—but also the same deep mystery, an unknown so impenetrable that only a fool would claim to know enough to write off hope, even hope for a caring and forgiving God."
- Robert Adams from the yet to be published Alaska As The Measure

Thanks to John O’Toole for the opportunity to contribute to the second edition of Oranbeg’s Interleaves. It was a nice chance to work with some orphan photos and do something different.
I’m really excited to finally announce here that I’ll be publishing The Last Road North with Kehrer Verlag later this year (more details soon). I’m so fortunate to be able to see this work through with Kehrer.
While making these pictures I always envisioned the book as the final artistic object. My editing process consisted of small prints, pinned all over my studio, pasted into notebooks, and countless pdfs. Eventually, I began to find a thread, a feeling, that I always yearned for. It wasn’t until making the physical mockups that I began to see the book clearly.
I loved the process of making these small handmade books, and eventually the full maquette, so much that I’ve committed to making a small set as the ‘special edition’ of sorts. These are entirely handmade books that I’m printing and constructing at my studio here in Juneau.
