Jasper by Matthew Genitempo
Hardcover. 10.5 x 13 inches. 51 tritone plates. 96 pagesTwin Palms Publishers. First edition
Inspired by the life and work of the poet and land surveyor Frank Stanford, these photographs were taken in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas and Missouri. By capturing the region’s foggy landscapes, hermetic homes, and rugged men living in solitude in the dark woods, Jasper explores Matthew Genitempo’s fascination with running away from the everyday. The work bounces between fact and fiction, exhibiting both the reality and the myth of what it means to be truly apart from society.
