Publisher's Description

The photographer Aaron Stern and poet Carl Phillips spent over half a year corresponding, sending work back and forth until they found a poem and body of photographs that choir together.

Throughout his work, Stern has paired text and image. Pacific Peace Piece continues in a similar vein with new photographs and “The Greatest Colors For The Emptiest Parts of The World,” a poem by Phillips. It appears in fragments throughout the book. The photographs, taken in Northern California in the summer of 2017, explore a narrative of estrangement, destruction, resilience. 

The book’s title makes use of the Bill Evans song, “Peace Piece.” 

Designed and self-published by Aaron Stern, 34 pages, New York, 2018.

“Summer, 2017 was stark. Strident. I spent most of it driving. I started in El Paso. When I got to Northern California, it was mid-afternoon, a dark fog abruptly rolled in. It didn’t rain. The clouds enveloped the countryside. The temperature dropped dramatically.  All in what seemed like in an instant. Things happen, things change. Most of the time they’re not in our control. Like our relationships with family, friends, lovers. With our so-called political leaders and even with ourselves.  We can choose how we remember, how we process the time.  And we can, in that moment, decide to be resilient or defeated.”

Comes signed by both Carl Philips and Aaron Stern with a 4x6 inch print tipped into the book.

LIMITED EDITION: Also signed with a 4x6 tipped in print. Includes an 8x10 inch print on vellum.
