Redwood Saw is published by Nazraeli Press

Redwood Saw is a photographic narrative comprising landscapes, seascapes, portraits, and nudes shot in and around the small coastal town of Crescent City, California, the Pacific Ocean, and the northernmost reaches of old-growth redwood forest which border the town.
“My hope was to come as close as I could to creating a visual and structural equivalent of the American novel, through pictures rather than words-a novel about the human loss of innocence, the worldly loss of wildness, and the consequential loss of freedom and hope that attend these conditions and that mark our times.” – R.R.
