The Lost Exploitation Journals

I have wanted to make a book using some of the images I have been producing during the last year. Here it is- finally finished- The Lost Exploitation Journals. I have created 600 newspapers, and 5 editions in hard back for sale-this is a culmination of ideas using abstracted imagery from film stills, transferring the […]

The image is of a volcano that sits behind […]
