Adrain Chesser’s first monograph, The Return, has been listed on three end-of-year lists as a notable photography book!

PDN, FlakPhoto, and Photo-Eye have all named The Return as one of the best photo books released this year. Chesser was praised as being “sympathetic to his subjects, and shows them on their own terms with an eye for gorgeous light, telling gesture, and detail. . .” by PDN. And and Photo-Eye calls The Return “a fine addition to photographic study of the back-to-the-land lifestyle.”
