Shafran’s first book. From the V&A: “Nigel Shafran’s Ruthbook is a sequence of chronologically ordered photographs taken between June 1992 and January 1995. The images reflect the nuances of a relationship over time and demonstrate Shafran’s process of staying attuned to the possibilities within everyday subjects.” A quiet poem for the everyday.
