Lauren Jacobs in Beneath The Wreckage

For my 2005 Portfolio I handcrafted a leather bound portfolio book, much of the work that I showcased in that book could be found on my website. But not my photography and only a select few actually got to see that monster of a book. So, for my first image post, I’d like to publish those photos.
