Stray was released in 2015 as a limited edition handmade artist’s book and was nominated for the MACK First Book Award, and the Photobook Award 2016 at the 8th International Photobook Festival, and was included in a Photobook Phenomenon exhibition at the Centre de Cultura Contemporania de Barcelona, in Spain. Stray was made in near total darkness and its sequence of images suggests a slow careful movement through a dark, enclosed space.
