Naive Forms

With time, we turn the visible world into designated meaning and language, replacing looking with thinking. This book honors a fundamental, child-like experience of the world, one understood primarily through form and matter.

Familiar objects from our environment are shown as seen through the negative spaces of other objects around them. The reader may find underlying connections and meaning between them, forming their own sense of the world.

From sky to ground, the images are arranged by viewpoint, indicated in the side of each page. Full bleed images hide in-between, prompting curiosity and discovery.
