Summary

A unique artist's book, produced while the artist was working with the renowned German publisher Gerhard Steidl to make his first book, Generation AK, a twenty year photographic odyssey of his time in Afghanistan. Ripped up off cuts of the printed book pages are collaged on one side of double-sided accordion pages; on the other side, handwritten text describes the artist's experience of working with Gerhard Steidl. He writes, "One thing you get with Gerhard is perfection, passion, and a lot of waiting. I knew my book would be of the greatest quality, a unique fragrance, and a paper that tore beautifully. Maybe my book is not a masterpiece, but I am speechless.... The waiting is over."

Binding
