Charth Vader.

Photographs and text Ashly Stohl.
Peanut Press, Los Angeles/New York, USA, 2015. In English. 64 pp., 28 duotone illustrations, 6¼x8¼".

In the first monograph of her work, Ashly Stohl brings us into the world of her visually impaired son, Charlie, through his alter ego, Charth Vader. The photographer and son tell us about the frustrations, fear, and challenges that Charlie encounters on a daily basis. While many of his challenges relate to his impairment, they also represent the loneliness and fears we all face as a child, and even as adults.

"As a parent, our hears are breaking over and over as we watch them struggle with issues big and small. Those struggles help them grow, but it's difficult to watch. It's that sadness, fear and struggle that I'm interested in, and at the same time, the dark humor of it all." — Ashly Stohl

Designed by Stohl, and her publishing partner, photographer, David J. Carol, this intensely personal book is a precious and small, much like Charth Vader himself. The book was printed by Meridian Printing in a first edition of 500 copies, with the first 100 signed, numbered, and included in a linen-covered, foil stamped box, with a gelatin silver print, printed by Chuck Kelton.

Profits from the book benefit the Vision Center at Children's Hospital, Los Angeles, a leader in treatment and research, that services children with visual impairments, regardless of their ability to pay.

The Limited Edition is signed, comes in a custom box (illustrated below) and is numbered in an edition of 100, and includes the print below:
