"A book that opens to a three-panel broadside with an intent to explore the 'architecture of memory' and reconcile loss from the documents and pictures of my recent past. This project was born out of a series of trips to Western Montana to photograph the voided rooms of our former home while hoping, somehow, to recover a store of joy that seemed inexhaustible for most of our lives...For me, this is a personal subject with discernible gravity and the weight to pull one into a narcissistic well, an impulse that I hope I’ve tempered with genuine gratitude and an incarnation of beauty and generosity."--Raymond Meeks
