Publisher's Description

Signed copies of It's Raining... I Love You are signed by both artists.

This co-authored book of early self-portraits by two professional photographers celebrates love—first love, an enduring friendship that resulted, and a lifelong devotion to photography as a form of creative expression. 

 The black and white photographs in the book are drawn from the summer of 1999—when Prince told us to party, computer scientists feared global shutdown, and the seismic changes in communication that arrived with widespread use of the internet had not yet occurred. Jenny Riffle and Molly Landreth, home from their first year at separate colleges, documented the precious and banal moments of early adulthood as they explored their surroundings, and each other, through photography. 

Presented along with selected correspondence from the remainder of their college years, the photographs are a testament to the power of enduring friendship, and the creative spirits of two unique yet complementary artists.

Her first monograph, Scavenger: Adventures in Treasure Hunting (Zatara Press, 2015), was the result of nearly a decade of visual exploration. Riffle, a faculty member at PCNW in Seattle, has received several awards including FotoFilmic’s Buschlen Mowatt Nichol Foundation Award in 2016, The Pilkington Prize in 2015, and the Aaron Siskind Foundation grant in 2013.
