From the publisher: "In 1988, Twelvetrees Press published the first book of Matt Mahurin's haunted, singular, and puzzling images. After working for several years in digital imagery and writing and directing a feature film Mahurin returned to the simplicity of the camera and darkroom. The photographs reflect the mood and vision of his first monograph and include work from America, France, Nicaragua, Ireland and Mexico. Mahurin's vision straddles two worlds-daytime glimpses out of the corner of the mind's eye, and night visions we might spy with our eyes closed. Ordinary moments captured in mid-gesture are infused with an unexpected ritualism. The photograph becomes a frozen prayer to the perpetual rhythm of everyday life."
