Summary: From the artist: “Overflow is a photobook about what it feels like to look at another with affinity. I wanted to make a book that seduced the viewer, characterized by nuance and the unassuming. It is elaborate in its design, sequence, and layout. Every detail, every page gives you stimulation.”

From Darius Himes: “This book is filled with stunning, sensitive portraits of young men, most in their teens and early twenties. The lighting is natural and exquisite. The editing and sequencing are simple and have a good rhythm. There are neither too few nor too many photographs. The book is the right size for the images and the works sit on the page nicely. We learn in the back that this book is from a small edition of 25. All is just right.”
