I am proud to announce the forthcoming release of my second monograph, Fall River Boys. This book is the culmination of over 8 years of photographing primarily young men and cityscapes in the town of Fall River, Massachusetts. Last winter, my partner Seth & I decided to start our own publishing company, Charles Lane Press, and to launch it with Fall River Boys. That decision - coupled with determination and our passion for the photo book - has brought forth this beautifully produced monograph. We have named our company Charles Lane Press after the tiny cobblestone street we live on in Greenwich Village.
Fall River Boys is what I consider to be a complete vision. All of our decisions have been made with quality in mind, and we feel that we have not compromised in any way with this book. It is the mission of Charles Lane Press to maintain the highest levels of quality - from the papers we select, and the craftsmanship of the German printers we work with, to the quality of our bindings and design.
Fall RIver Boys will be released in February of 2009 in an edition of 1200. It is comprised of 89 black and white tritone plates printed at a very fine 300 linescreen, and includes an essay by Pulitzer Prize winning author Michael Cunningham. The book will be available for purchase only through the Charles Lane Press website and at select bookstores in the United States and Europe.
