Print Lives / David Armario Design / Stanford Medicine

An honestly inspiring mix of photography, illustration and great writing in the Fall 2014 issue of Stanford Medicine.

David Armario and Dennis McLeod of David Armario Design approached me about working on this series of editorial stories that focused on the people affected by the medical science, with the actual science as a secondary player in the piece.

Brilliant illustrations by Jeffrey Decoster set the tone from the cover and are woven through the issue. The resulting stories I worked on, written by Kris Newby, Erin Digitale, and Tracie White are startlingly human, with layers of introspection opening up and unwinding like an onion peel. These characters came to life and I wanted my portraits to do the same.

Print lives. Sometimes better then ever.

$24 / A Book & A Print / HOME

Twenty four dollars.

The original version of HOME, published by Straylight Press is only $24.00.

What is this book all about? 

The publisher introduces it as so :

What is home? What can it mean? How do you show it?
Home can mean stability, comfort and sanctuary. Home can also be a stage where drama is played out.

HOME, by Timothy Archibald, begins with a rainbow. In the pages that follow we see his children dig a hole, appear and disappear, fall down and rise up.
Photographed during the dissolution of his marriage, HOME looks at presence and absence; it considers what is constant and how things change. It shows us that home, after all, is not really a place but a feeling.

A melancholy meditation in a minor key, HOME asks more questions than it answers.


And that really lays it all out there. 
And every print includes, signed and numbered, this very curious print.

HOME / Published by Straylight Press

Straylight Press has produced some inspired Special Editions for our forthcoming book HOME. 

Our goal was to make this story available to everyone and let the collectors get some great prints for themselves as well. The idea of everyone being able to have my little version of Icarus crashing here really sends chills down my spine. After self publishing ECHOLILIA and selling it for a price that was at times prohibitive, I'm so excited to be putting this out at a price everyone can relate to.

Buy this special edition and read all about the new book HOME at the Straylight Press site HERE.
