Crime Victims Chronicle, with Deborah Luster is the first volume in a series of collaborative journals produced by Raymond Meeks and published by The Silas Finch Foundation. The book combines photographs by Meeks with text excerpted from ‘Crime Victims Guidebook’ by Rose Preston, and a portfolio of images from Luster’s remarkable body of work ‘Tooth for an Eye.’

About the Artist
Deborah Luster is a photographic artist from Northwest Arkansas, US, and has been a professional photographer since the 1990s

Raymond Meeks (b. 1963, Ohio) has been recognized for his books and pictures centered on memory and place, the way in which a landscape can shape an individual and, in the abstract, how a place possesses you in its absence.  His books have been described as a field or vertical plane for examining interior co-existences, as life moves in circles and moments and events—often years apart—unravel and overlap, informing new meanings.

Raymond Meeks lives and works in the Hudson Valley (New York).  His work is represented in private and public collections including the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., Bibliotheque Nationale, France, and the George Eastman House, with recent solo exhibitions at Casemore Kirkeby in San Francisco and Wouter van Leeuwen in Amsterdam.  Raymond Meeks is the sixth laureate of Immersion, a French-American photography commission sponsored by Fondation d’entreprise Hermès. He will be mentored by David Campany, artistic director of the ICP, and will carry out his residency in France in 2022.

Raymond Meeks is a 2020 recipient of a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship in Photography.
