Fresh Press is a paper making studio on the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign campus. I was privileged to take a class learning how to make paper out sustainable materials such as reused cotton, tomato vines, eggplant vines, coffee, and jean.

The images you see to the right are a mix of my denim paper and recycled cotton paper taken in the Fresh Press studio. Each print is an image I took as part of a Florida series, also including a hand lettered print of Elton John song lyrics, 'Blue Jean Baby' that helped sparked the making of denim paper.
