Winter 2023/24 Book Release: MOURNING

On sale now.
Minor Matters
Includes an essay by Marvin Heiferman.

In early 2018 Kereszi’s father died suddenly, less than a year after her grandmother passed away. Managing grief from these dual and significant losses was made more difficult amid contentious family strife. When her father’s newly-erected headstone was toppled and had to be re-mounted, Kereszi was further distraught, and asked family members nearby to rig an off-the-shelf trail camera within view of the plot. Through that device and its auto-generated photographs, she could “visit” her father’s grave daily, though she was hundreds of miles away.

Kereszi amassed thousands of images over a seven-month period in 2019 that culminated in the trail camera’s disappearance. With the forced isolation created by the pandemic a year later, her life as a human, a mother, and a photographer radically changed. Seeking order and control when the world provided little of either, she began organizing grids of the visual visits to her father’s grave. This album of her efforts to manage mourning is presented at scale to the hand-created book she lovingly compiled as a record of her grief.

Released after a successful crowd-sourcing initiative in early 2024.
12 × 18.5 inches horizontal; 112 photographs; 32 pages.

Winter 2023/24 Book Release: IN, a Collaborative Family Photobook

On sale now, IN,by Benjamin Donaldson, Ottilie Leete, and Lisa Kereszi, with an essay by Robert Storr and afterword by Cindy House. Designed by Yve Ludwig.


The photographs in this volume were made with a variety of cameras by two parents and one child in, around, and near their home from early 2020 through the end of 2021, while living, working, teaching, and learning all under one roof, inside four walls.

Here is a book of images that are both familiar and strange. Everything is recognizable and nothing is. I know the bubble, the isolation, but this is not exactly my bubble. This book makes me feel like we were all lost at sea in our own boats, none of us in sight of each other out there on the open water, just trusting that the other ships were sailing in the same ocean somewhere.
—from the afterword by Cindy House
