Some Heroes, A Photographic Journal
By Gary Garbett, published in 2014
Some Heroes is a photographic journey, a visual diary of collected times, captured thoughts, conversations, and life directions without roadmaps. The American snapshots of pop culture and real life moments are captured with discarded and rescued film, instant, and digital cameras. The inspired pages are filled with chapters of days, liner notes, ordinary heroes, and back road journeys.
A memorable experience...
Gary Garbett's Some Heroes is a poignant look at the "liner notes" of his life. I enjoy his art and creativity, as well as his attitude towards rescuing and recycling things that still have life, especially cameras. When everything in life is going digital, Gary is able to hold on to the analog portion of life... in fact, he prefers it. One of the underlying threads in Some Heroes is Gary's relationship with his dad... his own hero. Given that I was reading this right after a death in our extended family, it was easy to feel the emotion and love that Gary put into this book to honor those who were his heroes.
Beautiful artwork, unique layout, and a message that has impact... Some Heroes is a memorable experience.
