As a child, Joshua Lutz watched his mother search for patterns in license-plate numbers. At night, she would unscrew the phone looking for hidden recording bugs. Lutz’s book “Hesitating Beauty” is a meditation on his relationship to his mother’s mental illness, told through the reworking of archived family images, imagined correspondences, and his own photographs. 

Here, Lutz writes about his experience, plus a slideshow of photos from his book: http://nyr.kr/XWWxhg
