Butts of Florence 2014

An artist book (2015).

The book that started it all. An experimental travel memoir of text and photographs made during an emotional return to Florence, eight years after studying abroad as a green college student. Returning as a Professor in Art and Communication Studies at Loyola Marymount University, I taught a class that sought to critically engage the Tourist experience. Butts... was an unexpected offshoot, sent to print before the last of the mosquito bites healed.
