This collection of intriguing black and white images was born of the artist's experience of oneness -- the timeless connection of all things -- and his effort to fill the void caused by the emptiness of the human spirit. Viewers who engage with these images may begin to see the endless possibilities of who we are and what we can become: one family in a vast universe.
About the artist
Call me ISz. I chose this name and identity because it expresses that which simply ‘is’—the immediate and active life-state and timeless connection with all things. It is from this connection, this oneness, that my images emerge. But it is the lack of oneness in global society that is the driving force behind my work. I am compelled to fill the void caused by this emptiness in the human spirit by creating a collection of visually disparate raw material with which the viewer can engage. Those participating in my imagery bring their own unique perspectives and can manipulate the many elements in my work in profoundly individual ways. In doing so they can begin to see the endless possibilities of who we are and what we can become. This experience will hopefully leave a spiritual afterimage that fades into a realization that we are one family in a vast universe, a universe only fully explored and understood together. Join me in the state I call ISz.
"There is a humorous aspect to most of these pieces that balances the severity of the human condition. I highly recommend this book to anyone who cares about all living beings & the purposefulness of those beings on this rock we call earth & in our ever expanding universe."

"The artwork within these pages is deceptively simple. Every time I look at these pages I see something that I hadn't noticed before. The paper is high-quality with no bleed through. You might want to buy two copies so that you can cut out the pieces you like most from one copy and frame them. Highly recommended."
