Trying to Find the Ocean (Indie Photobook Library, 2014)

Amazing news! The Indie Photobook Library’s collection of more than 2,000 photo-based publications produced by self-publishers and independent imprints are now permanently collected in Yale’s Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library. I’m pleased to have my first photobook “Trying to Find the Ocean” and a few curated publications make up a small part of this permanent collection, and elated as well for many fellow photographers. As a self-publisher and dedicated supporter of indie-run publishers, it goes with great honor to hear such institutions respect the immense time, creative energy and insight we employ to keep visual language at the foreground of our culture. A giant thank you and congratulations to Larissa Leclair for commanding IPL’s ambitions and accomplishments in making a global initiative reach such fruition!
