Contact Regarding Availability

In my photographic artist book, The Battle of Monmouth, I describe a Revolutionary War site located outside of Freehold, New Jersey. Today the Battle of Monmouth exists in fragments; excavated bullets,cloudy horizon lines, and illegible texts mark the conflict. My Monmouth book does not attempt to retell a single historic narrative. Instead, It presents a collection of image fragments that suggest thelimits and possibilities of historic meaning. As an artist I am interested in how we can begin to imagine a war that pre-dates the invention of photography.
