Photographers, like birds, greedily peck away at the world, digesting the occasional pebble as well as the intended breadcrumb. While nibbling away in Niigata Japan, Andrew Phelps has gracefully assembled a poetic journey which, factual to Niigata or not, has me lingering by his side, hoping for a delay of my return flight to the real world.
My forthcoming book NOT NIIGATA, will be released in the late summer with the Kehrer Publishiers in Heidelberg, who also published HIGLEY a few years ago. You can read a bit about my travels here.
