Publisher's Description
Displaced is a deeply personal handmade book about finding external beauty in the midst of intense internal crisis. Landscape photographer Lauren Henkin has created an introspective book which resides at the zenith of craftsmanship, and one which describes a hunger for inspiration during the breakup of her marriage.

Printed on archival paper and hand-bound by renowned bookbinder John DeMerritt, Displaced presents two photographic portfolios in black-and-white, derived from solitary departures in the U.S. and Nova Scotia. Any artist who has struggled with loneliness, with despair, with questions about self-worth will find hope here. The book is evidence that for artists, the act of perceiving beauty, and then carrying that perception forward as a work of art, is perhaps the most dependable and profound romance an artist will know. Steve Woodall, Director of the Center for Book & Paper Arts at Columbia College, calls Displaced 'a profound meditation on loss and renewal, and what endures.”
