“Todd Jordan’s photos are simple and uncluttered - relaxed pictures of
his friends, the women he loves and the places he travels to. However,
these are more than snapshots. There is a feeling of memories captured
- but also of a camera being used to connect with a community
of people, to look a little closer than is normally possible. In many ways
it is the people we know and the places we’ve seen, and perhaps more
particularly our memory of them, that make us who we are. The images
in this book act as a kind of sideways portrait of the photographer who
took them - we are able to look at the world as he sees it and understand
something about how he thinks and feels.” - Duncan Hamilton
