"Modern Times" Photo Book Selected by Writer/Curator Susan Bright for Time Magazine's "Best of 2012"!!

"...What I like about it really is its simplicity. It has a 'naivety' which is lost on so many photographers... There is nothing tricksy or conceptual here, just wonderful photographs beautifully edited into a book you want to hold...."- Susan Bright
