". . . But the past does not exist independently from the present. Indeed, the past is only past because there is a present, just as I can point to something over there only because I am here. But nothing is inherently over there or here. In that sense, the past has no content. The past -- or more accurately, pastness -- is a position. Thus, in no way can we identify the past as past." p. 15

". . . But we may want to keep in mind that deeds and words are not as distinguishable as often we presume. History does not belong only to its narrators, professional or amateur. While some of us debate what history is or was, others take it into their own hands." p. 153

24 Photos On Glossy Paper, Full Color Insert

Is going to be produced for TYBTF -- 24 of Vaquero's photos from 2004-2005, plus a few others scattered around, but those will be printed on the text pages in b&w.

This is filled with the awesome, as far as we are concerned. Nobody does this anymore because it costs to much. But the editor, publisher and marketing want to do it.
