Hi there, thanks for stopping by. I've been working on some new things and am happy to finally share them with you. I've been trying to reconnect with the original spirit of Daily Life Storage where publictions were available for free to those who fulfilled a small request. To this end, these new works are available in a variety of ways.
If you would like to see an archive of the original sixteen Daily Life Storage portfolios, please follow this link.
Otherwise, please browse the titles below. Enjoy!
Love all of you, Kris
