"This Is Not a Sawtooth Hanger" is a collection of essays, paired with photographs, on photography, art and the creative process – written for art enthusiasts and aspiring artists. For art enthusiasts, I hope the essays will be interesting and thought-provoking and the images aesthetically pleasing and worthy of your time and attention. If you learn something new or smile a little, then all the better! For aspiring artists, I hope this book will help you find your “voice.” What are you trying to say? Why? Did you fail or succeed? Does the work matter? This book is a window into what I’ve tried to do as a photographer. You, as an artist, of course, are on a different path but sometimes hearing about another person’s processes, goals, successes and failures can lead to your own moments of clarity. I hope you find these essays and photographs interesting but more importantly, I hope they inspire you to think more critically about your own work.
