But the good new is...
I’ve been thinking a lot about photo books lately as I begin the arduous but enlightening process of making a maquette for Stranded. So I was happy when news of two compelling new books came my way.
From Not Niigata © Andrew PhelpsAndrew Phelps is offering a pre-sale special edition of his upcoming book Not Niigata. When you purchase the special edition you will receive it before the official release date plus you can choose any image from the book and Andrew will send you a print. Sounds like a great deal. Contact Andrew directly to find out more.
From Your Golden Opportunity is Comeing Very Soon © RJ ShaughnessyRJ Shaughnessy continues the liberating trend of the self-published book with the very intriguing Your Golden Opportunity is Comeing Very Soon. He was kind enough to send me a signed copy. The book features images of what appear to be urban crash sites taken at night with Weegee-esque flash. RJ has limited the number of books to 500 and each includes a hand written edition marking and signature. It’s available at Dashwood and Colette.
The super talented photographers Juliana Beasley and Andrew Miksys along with four others have won the 2009 Siskind Foundation grant. Congratulations to them on this well-deserved honor.
