Jeff Jacobson and his son, Henry, are each publishing a new photo book — Jeff his third, Henry his first — both with Daylight Books in 2013.  Jeff is currently conducting a print sale and Henry a Kickstarter to raise funds for the works.

While father and son duos have been seen before in the photo world, this duo brings a new twist to the idea of complementary work; both of them working with the most popular medium of their respective generations – Jeff in (the now extinct) Kodakchrome, Henry with an iPhone – on projects that have been personal journeys through uncertain life territories.  Taken individually, each project is compelling in its own artful and distinct way of seeing the world, while together, they create a complex narrative of family, connectivity, loss, love, and beauty.

Purchase advance copies of Jeff and Henry’s books — The Last Roll and Postcards Home — along with prints, postcards, and other goodies through Henry’s Kickstarter or Jeff’s print sale.
