Limited Edition: All Things Being Equal…
Aperture Foundation produced only twenty-five "Limited Edition: All Things Being Equal..." monographs. The Limited Edition printing simulates the retroreflective, an interactive artform pioneered by Hank Willis Thomas. A retroreflective is activated by the flash of a camera, which only momentarily reveals a powerful hidden narrative.
The retroreflective book slides into a hefty black-linen hardbound case with the title "All Things Being Equal…" stamped in black foil on the casing and the spine.

In the retroreflective works, I’m trying to illuminate stories and parts of history that often get overlooked.
