Publisher's Description

Introducing a Hand-made Limited Edition, Book of Photographs.

A Harvard engineer produces cutting edge still-life photographs that explore ongoing philosophical and technological debates that have raged for centuries. Introduction by photo curator and art historian, Leslie K. Brown.

The book was designed and sequenced at the prestigious artist residency program at Light Work in Syracuse, NY.

The entire book is printed onto archival inkjet double-sided cotton photo rag paper. Hard cover and slipcase is made with Cailux book cloth; cover photograph is selenium toned silver gelatin print. The book was assembled, sewn and hand bound at Boston’s North Bennet Street School. 

An Experiment in Perspective is produced in an edition of 15 with 2 artist proofs. John Chervinsky signed each book as they sold. Since he passed away in 2015, these last few copies are NOT signed, but they are numbered and in pristine condition. A certificate of authenticity will be sent, signed by Kirsten Chervinsky, John's widow. There are only two more books available for sale. This one is $3000 and the last one will be $4000.

This handmade version of An Experiment in Perspective was produced with the support of the Artist-in- Residence program at Light Work in Syracuse, NY. The entire book was printed onto archival inkjet, double-sided, cotton photo rag paper. The pages were trimmed, folded, sewn and bound by students at the North Bennet Street School in Boston. The hard cover and slipcase were both made with Cailux book cloth. The cover photograph is a selenium toned, silver gelatin print, produced at Digital Silver Imaging in Belmont, Massachusetts.
