Signed by Halpern on first blank page.

The book’s collaged pages recreate Halpren’s scrapbooks, offering a powerful portrait of Omaha and its residents' multifaceted identities.  The small high-gloss photos arranged on matte colored paper span a remarkable political arc, capturing the post-9/11 era under George W. Bush, the Obama years, and the rise of Trump. Halpern's fragile and unsettling images focus on the complexities of masculine identity, the specter of poverty and underemployment, and the bleakness of the Midwestern city.  Despite these dark undertones, the book exudes a sense of hopefulness.  Halpern likens the design and sequence of his book to a musical score. 

Inside pages are clean, crisp, and like-new. Cover has very minimal shelf wear and a very shallow, short mark to front. Fine condition.

"For the last fifteen years, Gregory Halpern has been photographing in Omaha, Nebraska, steadily compiling a lyrical, if equivocal, response to the American Heartland. In loosely-collaged spreads that reproduce his construction-paper sketchbooks, Halpern takes pleasure in cognitive dissonance and unexpected harmonies, playing on a sense of simultaneous repulsion and attraction to the place. Omaha Sketchbook is ultimately a meditation on America, on the men and boys who inhabit it, and on the mechanics of aggression, inadequacy, and power." - from the publisher
