Photo Books

Two crowd-funded, self-published photo books made in Berlin

Material Senescence

Borrowing a term from biology, I use “senescence” to describe the ecological aging of architectural fabric in Material Senescence. Text and photographs draw from instances of failing architecture in Berlin to speculate upon the unpredictable breaking down of materials, the “building envelope,” in the urban built environment. Foreword by Mark Minkjan titled “Transience: the Nature of Architecture”.

Palimpsest

What happens to human artifice after the fact? A search for an answer to this question is chronicled in Palimpsest, a photo book documenting my “archaeological” investigations of abandoned sites in and around Berlin. Portrayed in black and white, Nature is cast as a pivotal actor in, and inextricable from, the palimpsest of human artifice. Foreword by Manuel Wischnewski titled “Nascent Places”.
