Daylight Books, 2013

This book grew out of my unexpected nomadic life that lasted from 2006 until 2013. The photographs were taken in response to what I saw and experienced and can be seen as a visual diary. This kind of seeing has grown out of a lifetime of searching with my camera. I am interested in responding to my ordinary life, to the unexpected, and in the activity of paying attention to the world.

“Engaging these societal and personal disruptions with her camera, Mayes has created a visual narrative in her book that elicits surprise, laughter and the recognition that odd juxtapositions in life can become metaphorical in art. The book features an introduction by photographer Peter Schlessinger and an essay by American poet and novelist John Olson“. From the DAP blurb
