Aaron Brumbelow’s handmade books break the photographic frame

In a small town book publishing scene dominated at one end by children’s books and tourist guides and, at the other, by zines, Aaron Brumbelow’s handmade art books stand alone. A SCAD grad (with an MFA in photography) and Armstrong professor hailing from Arkansas, Brumbelow has a fascination with handmade books as a new vehicle for photography.
