Softcover, edition of 300, signed & numbered, 4-Color Offset Printed, design by Micheal Ast, afterword essay by Mark Alice Durant.

“For Michael Ast photographing is a form of praise. To frame something in the world is to confer importance, to proclaim that it existed, was noticed and would not disappear without acknowledgement. He does not seek the spectacle of conventional beauty, nor does he indulge in gratuitous ugliness. Instead, Ast invents the world as he goes along, finding small moments and minor revelations that add up to an episodic collection of subtle dualities.” ~ Mark Alice Durant (author/artist)

“A beautiful blend of tough and poetic.” ~ Ron Jude (photographer/publisher)
