Photography > Written on the Body

I have always loved reading fiction, and I have always loved the colors and textures of old, hardcover novels. I had taken some iPhone close-up photographs of family and friends and decided to pair these body shots with the bodies of books as a way to capture the reciprocity of the visual image and the written word, and to underscore my feeling that all bodies have stories, that most stories are about bodies, and the the book is both an object and a portal.
