A Record of Undying

Booklet, A5
Vivid Projects

A collaboration between George Saxon and his partner, D. John Briscoe, A Record of Undying used film and photography to document the time leading up to and including John’s death from terminal illness. The subject matter, and especially its grounding in George’s lived experience, made this a difficult job to work on – I felt a real need to ‘get out of the way’ and let George’s work speak for itself as much as possible, but at the same time I didn’t want to underplay things to the extent that the design became dull. Hopefully I managed to find a middle ground between the two.
