New York-based British artist John Beech and New York playwright Edward Albee have known each other since 1991, when Albee acquired the first of several of Beech's works for his collection. In the summer of 2006, Beech set out for Montauk to meet with Albee about collaborating on a book. As Albee went through the images, Beech was struck by the poignant and poetic remarks Albee spoke in response, sometimes with just a single word, at other times with a short insightful phrase. These primary responses were the genesis of the facsimile-reproduced handwritten texts that appear in response to each of the 40 images reproduced in this stunning limited edition of 750 copies.
