The book “Brothers” deals with the ephemeral nature of close human relationships. Through the imagery of silhouettes and cast shadows along with the accompanying text, the book contemplates the duality of absence and presence in the feelings that surround memories of important people in my life. While the hand cut silhouettes of old friends speak to absence, the text lists concrete objects that are physical remnants of a person who has left my life. “Brothers” was created through a process of pressure printing and polymer plate letterpress printing mixed with digital printing and photographic imagery bound into a sculptural structure.
