The Moons of Saturn

Donation protected
A dialogue in word and image, The Moons of Saturn monograph is a collaboration between photographer Frank Rodick and writer Nancy Brokaw. 
Created in 2021, the suite of images that forms the backbone of this monograph reflect on the human condition in the time of Covid. Using a foundation of vernacular photographs — of both intimates and strangers — that anchor the constructed images, each picture may be understood as a confrontation of the hidden reality of life in the face of death: dissolution, loss, pain, and tragedy. 
In 2022, Rodick shared the series with Brokaw, a long-time interpreter of his work. Her commentary, which evolved from her correspondence with Rodick, explores the intellectual roots of the images as well as the personal impact of contemplating them.
Together, they worked with designer Jodee Winger to construct a 32-page monograph. Stephen Perloff has committed to distributing The Moons of Saturn under the auspices of The Photo Review, the second longest-running journal of photographic art in North America. All that is needed to proceed are the remaining funds for production and mailing.
The budget includes $8K (USD) for printing, $2K (USD) for fulfillment, and $1.5K (USD) for postage.
