This page is intended to be the official repository for all my book-length works, either authored or edited. The list below will always have the latest editions and will be expanded as new projects are completed.

This photo book is made up of 32 near-infrared images obtained with a Wratten 87 filter, which blocks the full spectrum of visible light.

This book also runs counter to prevailing trends, as all renderings of the infrared are strictly in grayscale.
