Book: III. Paradise (Obsessions).
Artist book. Paradise lives somewhere north of Mexico, close to the 5 and right next to a giant pair of concrete boobs full of martian milk. On the water, it was too hard to see how good it could be. I tried to document it because we knew it wouldn’t last.

Spiral bound. Interior pages are printed 2 color (blk + purple) with inset 16 page CMYK gallery printed on semi-gloss art stock.
