I'm happy to share my first book cover: Ohio by Stephen Markley published by Simon & Schuster. Expected publication date will be next year, August 21st, 2018. I look forward to reading it and congrats to Stephen Markley on his debut novel!

The photograph is from my series (and limited edition booklet–still available!) ten convenient stores. This image was shot with a 4x5 view camera and I'll always remember making it, the family sitting and waiting in the back of the car, the wanted poster taped to the left of the door, the smell of the recent rain—I love seeing now, it in this format.
On my last visit to Goshen, NY we arrived just as the sun was setting over the town. The new structure is nearly finished. Most of the construction equipment is gone, the parking lot has reopened, and fresh grass is beginning to take root. The zombie modernism brutalism mashup is almost complete. I'm still scratching my head and wondering why.
