"The book is a reproduction of a photo album that shows my father dancing in a Los Angeles Photo Studio in 1967" - Tiane Doan na Champassak

"Imagine going through a pile of your deceased father's old things, and discovering a self-made book — spiral-bound, edition of one — of him, age fifty, dancing in various proto-hippy outfits around a Los Angeles photography studio in 1967. Champassak's facsimile of his discovery — complete with trippy multiple-exposures, dad-moves that could kill, and the evidence of rips and tears that Champassak himself made when trying to unstick the original's pages from one another — is both a ticklish and touching tribute to his father, and to the insight and abandon that photography can offer both its subject and its viewer across the generations." - Aaron Schuman
