Publisher's Description

Halpern's scarce 2009 artist's book with the same title is long out of print and currently sells for over $400.

Omaha Sketchbook is a collection of photographs made by Gregory Halpern in Omaha, Nebraska between 2005 and 2019. Driven by his interest in, and ambivalence to, the modes of masculinity he found there, Halpern presents a lyrical, if equivocal, response to the American Heartland. In loosely collaged spreads that reproduce Halpern’s construction-paper sketchbooks, Halpern takes pleasure in cognitive dissonance and unexpected harmonies, playing on a sense of simultaneous repulsion and attraction. Omaha Sketchbook is ultimately a meditation on a place, on the men and boys who inhabit it, and on the mechanics of aggression, inadequacy, and power.

Magnum photographer Gregory Halpern won the 2016 Paris Photo-Aperture Photobook of the Year award for his book, ZZYZX, which is now in its third printing.
