"The town is quiet, the streets are empty. But if you take the road into the backwoods, you’ll start to hear some noises. A branch snaps and there are voices, laughing. A few lights are on at one house and a fire burns behind a barn. And if you relax your eyes you can see that there are people all around. The folks who live further out don’t follow the same rules. They have their own idea of what the night is for.
Dylan Hausthor and Paul Guilmoth listen to the people who them stories of birth and death and their photographs are remnants of those who live along a little creek that floods on the same day each spring. This book is the result of many days in and around the stream and a testament to the power of the myths that fuel the towns in the distance." — Vivian Ewing

‘Sleep Creek’ is a landscape filled with trauma and beauty. It’s a place where animals are only seen when they’re being hunted and humans balance between an unapologetic existence and an abyss of secrecy. These images manipulate a landscape that is simultaneously autobiographical, documentary, and fictional: a weaving of myth and symbol in order to be confronted with the experiential. Following the rituals of those within it, ‘Sleep Creek’ is an obsession between the subject and the photographer — a compulsion to reveal its shrouded Nature.”

Dylan and Paul have been working together since 2011 but they only started making ‘Sleep Creek’ in 2016, when they lived together in a cold house on Peaks Island, a small island only accessible by boat off of the coast of Maine. They gave themselves the boundary of the island as a perimeter to make photographs. It began as a traditional interest in place—a documentary of a piece of land and stories of its inhabitants, but as the work began to expand they let their thoughts cross-pollinate with those outside the island, namely their families and the lands that we were raised on.

Paul Guilmoth and Dylan Hausthor are a collaborative artist duo based in the woods of the Northeast. Their practice is primarily focused on photographic and bookmaking art; occasionally questioning the boundaries of both. They co-founded the publication studio Wilt Press in the winter of 2015 and together make work that centers around the myth of place and the complexity of image-based narrative.
