“There comes a time in every rightly constructed boy’s life when he has a raging desire to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure.”
-Mark Twain, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
Riley grew up in rural eastern Washington. As a child he read Mark Twain’s stories of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn and decided he wanted to be like those mythical boys. He wanted a life full of treasure and adventure. In the series Scavenger: Adventures in Treasure Hunting, photographer Jenny Riffle follows Riley out on his hunts and photographs the objects he collects. Riffle explores the line between documentary and fantasy. She portrays Riley as an adventurous character driven by the thrill of the hunt and the possibility of what he will discover.
At home Riley arranges and displays all of his treasure. Accompanying 100 copies of the book Scavenger are a set of 15 stereograph cards and a portable viewer to allow the reader to experience Riley’s displays in 3D. Looking into the stereoscope, the reader is invited into Riley’s world of found treasures.
Jenny Riffle was born in Washington State in 1979. She received her MFA in Photo, Video and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts in 2011 and her BA in photography from Bard College in 2001. In 2014 Riffle was chosen as one of PDN’s 30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch, she received the Aaron Siskind Individual Photographer’s Fellowship Grant in 2013 and the Juror’s Award at Newspace Center for Photography’s 2012 Juried Show for her project Scavenger: Adventures in Treasure Hunting. Riffle lives in Seattle where she teaches at the Photo Center Northwest.

A Limited Collected Edition Casebox of Homesick with an original print will be available in late September.
When you’re sick people say things:
What are avocados good for?
Your stomach is your second brain.
You probably shouldn’t be eating that.
You can stay as long as you like.
I didn’t sign up for this.
We’re just glad you’re here.
Homesick is a diary of the artist’s relocation to her family’s property in New York as told through anecdotal photographs of food, phantom limbs, and common things visualized along the journey. The move–originally prompted by concern for her aging parents’ ailing health–addresses additional concerns as the artist learns of and seeks treatment for her own chronic health condition.
Sustenance, biology, and family are emphasized in the vertical color image pairings. The narrative portrays elements of her new household’s health and well-being from the vantage point of an artist that is digesting a Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis.
The photographs are accompanied with a short story by Ani Katz.
In Early September we will also be releasing our 2nd Book, Scavenger: Adventures in Treasure Hunting by Jenny Riffle. Stay tuned for more information on Scavenger as we go on press later this week. Then in mid September our quiet group book, Unassembled will finally come back from the presses.
While we were not able to acquire one of the increasingly rare 300 spots at the New York Art Book Fair this year, ZP and our artists will be there roving between tables with a few of our books. Keep an eye out for us.
Please feel free to visit the website and peruse ZP’s other publications, which are still available. All of our projects are produced in Richmond, Virginia, and many are printed there as well.
Until Then We Remain,
