Graciela Iturbide- asor

Purported to be loosely based on Alice in Wonderland, these dream like photographs are a black and white adventure down the rabbit hole of this remarkable photographer's imagination. The book also contains a CD of compositions by Manuel Rocha Iturbide, chosen as a direct response to his mother's work in this book. The 2011 book "Mexico/Roma" was one of the great finds of last year and "asor" is a magical addition to the library as well.

If you'd like to view images from this book and many others, it is available at photo-eye bookstore:

At Work In The Ghost Republic

We are busy at work here in the high desert and in other secret locations flung about the globe. Our current efforts are being directed at finishing a new record, finishing work on a collaborative book with photos and text by our friends and a short film to go with both. We are hopeful that these three similar but different items will see daylight next year!

Books and Films are something new to those who labor in the WGC woodshed. It has been and continues to be an interesting process, almost three years in the making. We are excited at the possibilities of mixing text and images with the music and adding new layers to the storytelling.

We'll do our best to keep you posted with the workings and developments as they begin to roll out. In the meantime, there are a few solo dates for Robert in November that we've made note of and hope you get a chance to attend.
