"A humorous, often lyrical, and richly illustrated celebration of the art of making mistakes. Failed It! is creative director, artist and photographer Erik Kessels’ captivating account of the need to embrace the possibility of failure. Photography provides a brilliantly witty medium to demonstrate his contention that failure enables unexpected triumphs. Fingers over the lens, awkward moments or angles, an undignified posture: all can lead to far more arresting visual images than the flawless.
