Last night I received the nice news that the second edition of my book In Passingwas juried into the Photo+Book exhibition at the 23 Sandy Galleryin Portland, OR. The exhibition will run the month of March, which coincides with my book making workshop at the 23 Sandy Gallery in mid-March.
Okay, coincidence that my book was juried in at the same time that I am teaching a workshop at the gallery, a fair question considering my recent review of the Humble Arts book on The Photo Book. The jurist was Christopher Rauschenberg, and not affiliated with the gallery. Christopher is also a wonderful photographer, co-founder of Photolucida and co-founder of his own gallery in Portland, Blue Sky Gallery. So if the book did not have merit, I trust that Christopher would not have juried it in.
Second, I think that the second edition looks damn good, within the boundaries and limitations of print on demand publishing. And I can honestly say, that I doubt that my first version of In Passing would have been juried in, which is why I did the complete design make over for the second edition.
So I think that this is pretty nice for the efforts that I placed into this series and the resulting book. very nice.
Best regards, Doug
