Description of book:
Cat Stevens’ first monograph reads like a dreamscape, guiding us through light-drenched and at times surreal impressions of a journey taken through Northern and Southern California. Stevens references the song lyrics of ‘Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams’ to put into context her reaction to a chance meeting with a psychic, the feeling of disconnection, wandering and escape as well as a state of stillness and contemplation whilst being on the road. Seen from a female perspective the emotions her photographs convey raise questions about the human individual’s continual search for meaning and freedom. Through visceral landscapes and metaphorical scenes, her book travels mystically somewhere in between dream and reality.

The best thing about self-publishing: Freedom.
