Essay by Marvin Heiferman
Disquiet illuminates the ways in which the outside world infiltrates and colors the events of our lives – shaping and molding our moods, actions, hopes and fears. It is a metaphoric journey that examines the first two years in the life my son, weaving intimate family pictures with images of the political and economic turbulence in American society between 2010 and 2012. Relying on a comprehensive visual approach, including environmental portraiture, landscapes, still lifes, and news images, Disquiet creates a multi-layered story of beauty, tenderness and unease.
The book made a number of “Best Books” of 2013 lists, including lists from Photo Eye, PDN and Conscientious. Vince Aletti wrote about the book in Photograph Magazine, and Jorg Colberg of Conscientious called Disquiet ”truly magnificent” and said that it is “as much a personal body of work as it is a piece of social engagement.
