Coming soon! Portraits: photography by Ann Ploeger

Our publisher is a big fan of up-and-coming Portland photographer Ann Ploeger, so publishing her debut collection is a very special project for us.

Portraits is a full-color, high-quality presentation of Ann's stylized, iconic images of stoic domesticity in vintage settings. The book will launch in June.

In the book's introductory essay, writer and poet Jared Stanley writes, "The photographs combine high artifice with a humanistic delight in the variety and abundance of humanity’s material production.”
