It gives me great pleasure to announce the launch of my first book in collaboration with Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau.
Leaf Peeper is now available for pre order through Rokov Publishing - http://rokovpublishing.com/
The book is about “Momijigari”, the Japanese tradition of visiting scenic places in autumn to see the leaves of the trees as they turn red. My photographs follow a Japanese man on the tourist trail around an Imperial villa in Kyoto as he takes endless pictures of the darkening leaves. I invited friend and long time collaborator Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau to write a short fiction in response to the photos. The text runs in parallel to the images and offers a story of insight, ignorance and blocked sinuses.
