Witch Sleepy Head in a Valley is a poem I read in a zine, written by one of my former photo students, Charlie Best. I found it hard to forget: a strange and sweet description of intimacy. My daughter is currently a Witch in Training, so the poem feels apt in relationship to her play with magic.

The form of the book grew out of a collaborative assignment I gave to my students. We swapped images with one another to practice less careful, less prescious, book design.  Singular images share the page with the materiality of our home: reflected light behind a tent, moving water, painted cardboard, dust piles on the floor. These collaged spreads echo my studio wall, or the piles on my desk, and aim towards description not always possible in a photograph alone.
