With his first monograph “Jasper”, Texas-based photographer Matthew Genitempo invites us into the dark, misty woods of the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas and Missouri, where he documents the men who choose to live a secluded lifestyle there.
About the project, Genitempo says:
“By capturing the foggy landscapes, cluttered interiors, and the rugged men that are tucked away in the dark woods, the project explores my fascination with running away from the every day. The pictures bounce between fact and fiction, exhibiting the reality and myths of what it means to be truly apart from society.”
“Jasper” was short-listed for the 2018 Paris Photo/Aperture Foundation First PhotoBook Prize and awarded the Hariban Juror’s Choice Award. The monograph is available from Twin Palms Publishers.
