Piece description from the artist
This is an old history text book that was owned by Iva Carter, a young lady from Greenville, Texas in the early 20th century. She wrote all through the book, not only class notes and reminders about assignments, but also notes to her friends in class, and very personal wishes and hopes and dreams. She wrote many versions of her (someday) wedding announcement to her prospective groom. Through her writings, I got a glimpse of her life. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to learn anything else about her, but the book is a beautiful, tattered artifact.
This is a TurningArt exclusive limited edition print available in editions of 100.

His photographs have appeared in major national television commercials, and TV programs such as "Grey's Anatomy" and "Melissa and Joey".
