I AM. YOU ARE. follows a series of successful projects including the Untitled Love book and traveling art showcase, the Good Things About America patriotic anthology and poetry tour, and the Instant Gratification, Polaroid 600 Series, tribute exhibition and upcoming instant film book featuring over 200 participating photographers from around the world.
Whether out of boredom or loneliness the book began when author Kevin Staniec decided to list his obvious inadequacies in an attempt to better himself. Somewhere along the way, these fragmented perceptions began to read like poems. He then invited San Francisco based writer Melanie Moore to respond with her opinions and asked Emilio Santoyo, a successful illustrator living in Los Angeles, to add color to their emotions.
