Stubbs was a student of Eli Mandels an adheres to Mandels claim that memory is sacred. The seed for this book was a collection of photographs that the authors father took during his service in World War II, including those taken at the liberation of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. The searing sequence War opens the book and breaks new poetic ground as he delves into outer and inner reaches of the human condition. Stubbs explores unreliable, yet essential generational memories while at the same time weaves into his precise language how his parents choices have influenced his own life. What emerges is a whole-hearted embrace of being, where his precise craft is in perfect sync with the powerful subject matter of war, memory and loss.
