The special edition of Matthew Genitempo’s debut monograph, Jasper, includes an alternate book cover, a handcrafted slipcase by Rory Sparks, and an signed 8×10” archival inkjet print.
Inspired by the life and work of the poet and land surveyor, Frank Stanford, these photographs of hermetic homes and men living in solitude were taken in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas and Missouri.
By capturing the foggy landscapes, cluttered interiors, and rugged men that are tucked away in the dark woods, Jasper explores a fascination with running away from the everyday. The work bounces between fact and fiction, exhibiting the reality and myth of what it means to be truly apart from society.
