The Traveling Bookbox Show

An unusual touring exhibition of book-themed shadowboxes. Many are now being housed at The Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History in California.
“I cannot remember the books I've read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me.”

The Unbearable Lightness of Being

by Milan Kundera

I've tried to capture Tomas and Tereza's last evening of life in a hotel dive bar in the Czech countryside. This simple scene has stayed with me since I first read the book in 1994, perhaps because it so plainly exemplified Kundera's title... That one could have a perfectly ordinary day, then disappear forever and never know it was your last.
