Confluence

This single edition handmade book, featured in George A. Smather's Libraries Art Bound exhibition and purchased by the University of Florida Rare Books Collection 2014, is a detailed volume of relationships and history. By juxtaposing highly personal photographs and prose with geographic and topographic features, it tells the story of the fragility of human relationships, and touches upon feelings of love, loss, and remembrance.

This volume focuses on materiality, and the concept of memory, in order to detail the rise and fall of a relationship, using found family photographs and maps. The writing and imagery is a collaboration between myself and designer Rebecca Agatstein.
