Works in Progress

Working with the Wooster Group on a follow-up play to our 2017 production, “The B-Side” (which the NY Times named one of the ten best plays of the year). Finishing work on two photo books, one landscape photography in the Northern Chihuahuan Desert, 2011-2019, the other a book of previously unpublished color photographs from Texas and Arkansas prisons, Inside/InColor: Kodachromes, Ektachromes & Polaroids, 1964-1979, to be published by Twin Palms.
