Raw ThΦughts is a visceral exploration of mindfulness and hope through a symbiotic fusion of poetic and photographic art. Each successive poem-photo pairing—each "raw thought"—builds on an underlying philosophy that compels us to assess and adjust what and how we think, with the aim of improving our lives—and by extension, the lives of those around us.
Originally from NH, Casey earned a Master of Arts from Florida State University. His poetry has appeared in numerous literary journals and magazines. Passionate about fitness, nature, and the human spirit, his writing is inspired by the incredible spectrum of people, places and cultures he has experienced in life. Raw ThΦughts is Casey's first book. He is currently working on a novel titled Devolution.
Already an accomplished commercial and wedding photographer, Raw ThΦughts represents Hussey's first published works of Fine Art photography. Hussey's photography education came not in a classroom, but in the studio, working alongside his father. The work produced for Raw ThΦughts is a return to those roots. Every photograph was shot using vintage film cameras—many using his father's Mamiya 645 camera.
