THIRTY FIVE MM FILM AND MINOLTA’S SRT-101 IN THE LOWER EAST SIDE
2019| Thirty Five mm Film and Minolta’s SRT-101 in the Lower East Side” is an editorial publication designed by combining a series of Wikipedia articles with my photography. The result was a story, or description, of: film photography, my camera, and Manhattan’s Lower East Side. My TOC, made up by a combination dots and breaks (losely related to the amount of content in each section), is repeated on each chapter’s title page. The cover plays with the concept of hiding and revealing information, similar to what I was doing in my documentation of this particular neighborhood.

Subject: D.B. Cooper
2021| Subject: D.B. Cooper is my visual exploration of the famous D.B. Cooper highjacking case. A lot has been published on Cooper, yet not a lot of concrete information has been found and he has continued to elude officials since his hijacking. This publication pieces together a number of articles from “The Black Vault” an online archive and clearing house. Through the use of highlighting, I am able to lead the reader through my discoveries and my own understanding of the case as it stands. There are also a number of articles that have since been deemed fake which I choose to display on a black background in order to emphasize the shift between truth and fantasy.
Victorian Short Stories of Troubled/Successful Marriages
Editorial 2021| This novel is a compilation of two books found on Project Gutenberg: Victorian Short Stories of Successful Marriages, and Victorian Short Stories of Troubled Marriages. I chose to combine these two books to emphasize the duality within marriage and the content within the stories. The first portion of the book, successful marriages, is set in traditional black on white, wheras the latter portion, the troubled marriages, is set in white on black. The table of contents is reflected in the title pages and ties the design of the book together. The front and back covers are before and after images of the Victorian era fire in the Crystal Palace.
