...exclusivity dwells in habitat

Exclusivity dwells in habitat is a collaborative work with Auckland poet Sam Sampson. I came across lines from a more expansive work and on reading the word photographer was prompted to suggest to Sam that I respond visually to his piece. The resultant bookwork, published in April 2012, is in an edition of 100 copies each signed and numbered by Sam and myself. Here is Sam Sampson's verse:

…exclusivity dwells in habitat
adaptable from desert to compass rose, the inherent nature of construction. Cubistimages: violins and guitars analogous to costumes later designed as conforming to thesoul… there are several areas of debate,the capacity of a single imagination: emotionfor analysis and the claims of a photographer detailing colour with interest in the arcof a possible cause (a likely cause which cannot leave a trace was omitted)
