Jodi McQueen - A Creative Life

Astonishing grand limited edition of 500 sets of 2 full-leather Italian calfskin volumes, 
fitted within a half-leather and Italian cloth clamshell box.

The clamshell boxes contain a concealed media compartment,
to accommodate, digital storage relating to the tribute edition.

The edition required 32,000 individual genuine gold hand toolings.  
3000 original double-size hand marbled papers were created in house.
15,000 square feet of the very finest full vegetable tanned Tuscan calfskins, 
were required for the edition, resulting in each number set as a unique work of art.

Oversize 14 x 14  inch pages, many as gatefolds, showcase the brilliance of the masterful
design, printing and binding which fittingly herald the creative artistry, passion and beauty
of Jodi McQueen, and are evocative of a love she will long engender.

















The Backpackers  ~  Los Mochileros     by Petra Barth

". . . In my photographs, I am interested in transitory and intuitive moments and the subtleties of the overall scene.
My goal is to create an emotional connection with the viewer so that through 
the esthetic, the content of the images
becomes more powerful as you become more intimately involved with the photograph."

" . . . but much of what makes us who we are is not only a matter of fact.
What makes us who we are is a matter of what was—and what could have been.
We each have a story to tell.  This is mine."
