SPECTACLES: A New Book of Jewelry and Photography
In his fourth book, Stephen Albair—by his own admission “an artist obsessed with recasting found objects and first-person experiences”—presents what he terms “a memoir told through photography and jewelry design.
Working within the traditions of Tableau Photography (staged stories), Photography and Jewelry Design are considered together as he explores themes of love, loss, and longing, that he began examining in his prior book, FALSE BLOOM.
This time out however he includes a great deal more text as he keenly describes how his creative process has evolved over the years. Viewers will find themselves pulled into his world via over 100 photographs that enhance the themes and depict how one media impacts the other.
