Saint Petersburg Limited Edition – One up for auction.

April 21st, 2014

SP01

To go along with my unlimited printing of my book, Saint Petersburg, I have created this limited edition book.

Only 5 copies made, this book features hand sewn binding, and hand-made silver gelatin prints.  The prints were created from watercolor paper that I coated with emulsion that I made from silver nitrate, salt, gelatin, and alcohol.

Because this is a hand-made process, you can expect the prints to have character.

The book contains 10 of what I felt were some of the strongest images from the book Saint Petersburg sewn in.

13 pages, and the book is an even 1 foot by 1 foot in size.

I am currently placing one of the only 5 made up for auction on Ebay.  The auction is starting at $0.99 with no reserve.

Bid now and good luck!

New Photobook – Saint Petersburg

April 19th, 2014

StPetersburg-Cover-Final

I just completed my latest book.  Saint Petersburg documents my time in Saint Petersburg Russia.

167 pages

Soft cover

McNally Jackson prints books very inexpensively.  The paper is intended for printing text, and is not the high quality photo paper that you would usually find in a printed photobook, however for this work and the rough images I have created, I think it works.  It also allows me to have this 167 page photobook on sale for only $14.99, which is incredibly inexpensive for this size and number of pages.

I also believe in supporting independent local bookstores, and this enables me to do that with McNally Jackson Books.

You can purchase either in store or online.

Buy it here!

I will soon be releasing a very limited hand-made edition of some of the images in this book, so keep an eye out for that edition.
