This is somewhat off-topic, but I do think of the first two books
mentioned below to be visual music in book form.

I am very happy to announce that three photography books I created in
2007 are now available for ordering or previewing at

Over the Edge (240 pages, 7 x 7, $65 hardcover, $50 paper) is a
sprawling visual improvisation, similar to one of my live video
performances, but without the sound and at a pace set by the viewer.

Variations (Seven Photo Compositions) (120 pages, 13 x 11, $100
hardcover) is a collection of photographic sequences or
compositions, each of which is organized around a specific theme,
much as a musical composition can be organized around a melodic
theme, rhythm, or set of chord changes. The compositions are titled
Car Reflections, Vancouver Blues, Notes from Underground, Cut Flower
Variations, Sign Jazz, Car 4468, and Mappings.

To Beauty (Reflections of a Photographer and Improvisor) (96 pages,
8 x 10, $55 hardcover, $45 paper) is a book illustrating a poem about
why I do photography and what I think about when I do it. I may
revise and extend it in the future.

Selected images from the books can be viewed at

ability to function."
