Recent Purchase


I recently purchased this book,"What Can We Believe Where?: Photographs of the American West (Yale University Art Gallery)" (Robert Adams)

Another fabulous and humbling collection of the most wonderful images, I've been privileged to experience. Yet another addition to my growing collection.

New Publication

SoFoBoMo

This month I got involved in:-

SoFoBoMo is short for Solo Photo Book Month - a group event where a bunch of photographers all make solo photo books start to finish in 31 days.
SoFoBoMo 2010 is running from 1st June to 31st July.

My book is uploaded, and freely available, have a look see what you think?

Another Book Publishing Venture

I Recently signed up for another book publishing idea, this time over at, SoFoBoMo, the challenge is to produce 35 images in a pdf format book in one month. So I plan on uploading a book of 35 images minimum by the 19th of July. "SoFoBoMo is short for Solo Photo Book Month - a group event where a bunch of photographers all make solo photo books start to finish in 31 days.
SoFoBoMo 2010 is running from 1st June to 31st July."

Fingers crossed, I've a busy month ahead, a return to the EOTOB program for 2010, albeit a short 7 day stint this time, and a few days off to make images, in what can be gorgeous winter light.

Online Book Publishing

Blurb now allows you to upload a pdf for publication. Using their own templates is part of the process, but I always found their software slow and clunky on my computer.

And it is rumoured that the colour quality is better from them compared to lulu.com, too.

So look out.

A Conversation with Joshua Lutz (Conscientious)

A few days ago, I mentioned a reference to a body of work, by a Photographer, who had published the work in a book many years earlier on an area called Meadowlands, well today I discover that another photographer has spent 10 years working in the same area, and, has also published a book and an exhibition. This time however in colour. Joel over at Conscientious, has interviewed the photographer

Joshua Lutz just had Meadowlands published, after spending ten years on the project. His book (and recent show) had me curious about the background of the project, and I approached Joshua to talk about it.

I'd be curious to chat to Joshua and see how much the place had changed, and if Ray Mortensen's work had any influence on him, or the idea?

This, sentence, on a collector's blog surpises me.

"Collector's POV: Prior to this show, we knew nothing about the work of Ray Mortenson."

The reason being, the fist photographic monograph I bought, way back in, 1989, was by Ray Mortensen, entitled, Meadowland.

Books figure very highly in my creative output and inspiration, and while I had to 'think' about the name, I recognised it eventually, which I then confirmed by checking my library.
