For everyone who has patiently waited it out… MY BOOK IS HERE!!!

On Sunday night (tomorrow) we will be releasing my book to the public for sale! The surprise is that the book is now 2 volumes. Volume I is the start of my career and alot of fashion, editorial, documentary, and personal work. Volume II is a dark transition into death, erotica, tragedy, and sex.

You can order both Volumes at a discounted rate from me personally (check or money order) and the box set will include a limited edition print, or you will be able to buy each volume separately.

PRESS RELEASE:

The Human Process
Over 500 never before published images and writings of Shane Deruise in his first retrospective. There are very few books of photography and poetry that strike to the moral core, but no edition before now has ever attempted to make you question yourself as a person. It is comfort as much as it is torment. Deruise’s vision is timeless and resonates with new photographic meaning.

816 pages (Volume I: 390 p. – Volume II: 426 p.), numerous color and black-and-white photographs & memoirs, 8×10″.
