Raymond Meeks (b. 1963) has been recognized for his books and pictures centred on memory and place. And the way in which a landscape can shape an individual and, in the abstract, how a place possesses you in its absence. So, in 2014, a mid-career retrospective of his books (Where Objects Fall Away) was organized by Light Work. The exhibition featured more than twenty books. Including self-published works. As well as numerous volumes from a variety of publishers.
His books are less a box for storing unexamined experience, than 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. Therefore, informing new meanings.
