“[W]hen text is juxtaposed with images, there’s usually (from my perspective anyway) an uneasy truce between the two. Often times it is unclear how the text is supposed to function and the dynamic between the two ends up feeling either too literal and didactic or too illustrative. One way I thought I might be able to get around this was to make the text, itself, the focus of the picture. Or more specifically the words on the page within a book.” Doug Hall
