I created the images for this book with a Polaroid land camera and my grandmother's clunky typewriter in 2003, shortly after my grandfather's death. They depict the solitary mile that separates my grandparents' farm from Highland Lutheran Church and Cemetery where he is buried in rural Cummings, North Dakota. Traveling that stretch of familiar road alone, contemplating the previous week's funeral preparations, I found my own way of saying goodbye to him.
For this limited edition artist's book, I scanned the original Polaroids and reproduced them using Harman Fiber-Based Inkjet paper. These were then mounted onto the accordion book's Copperplate Bright White paper.
