Tiny Gods, the book

While I was sick in February I had the opportunity to complete the layout for the Tiny Gods book. It's 67 pages of color and black and white images on glossy heavyweight paper. Each chapter begins with a digital contact sheet of the subject photographed for it. There are 13 subjects and 8 chapters. The book is here and is available in 2 sizes (12x18 and 6x8), and there are only 10 copies (each signed and numbered) of each size available for sale. 12x18 size is $150 and the 6x8 size is available for $80. If you are interested in ordering a copy, leave a comment with your contact info. No personal information will be published, and those comments will remain private.

The name of the series, Tiny Gods, comes from the idea that we idolize our partner(s). Often times, it appears from the outside looking in that we worship our romantic interests and lovers, thus making them miniature deities. Each piece of writing on each image is about one of my previous loves or another and was written at the time I felt such notions. So each one of those good lookin' individuals I photographed for the series took on the task of conveying what was written on their finished image.
