I have some really awesome News to share: my artist book The Flow of Light Brushes the Shadow will be published this Fall by Singular Image Press!
Yes, I have been busting at the seams to make this big reveal. This is so cool!
I have been writing about the development of this project for some time, with this update last December. While working on my climate change projects, I have been concurrently tweaking the design, layout and sequencing of my book-dummy. Now this artist book will soon have wings. This is the first title for Singular Images Press and there is a wonderful publishing team that is helping to make this artist book a reality.
Meanwhile there are all of the practical aspects of publishing this artist book, at the forefront is funding the book production. Thus, I am starting a pre-publication sale (see below) to see if I can avoid a Kickstarter campaign.
The Flow of Light Brushes the Shadow investigates anxiety as a mental health condition. Although anxiety has haunted me for my entire life, it has only recently come to light. Anxiety is considered one of the most prevalent health conditions globally. It is an elusive and silent condition that affects an estimated 40 million adults in the U.S. and 284 million adults worldwide.
Since the Russian invasion and their war in Ukraine, the worldwide numbers of who are dealing with anxiety have probably increased substantially. There are many forms and varieties of anxiety, and this project is my way to visualize and come to grips with how anxiety affects me.
This will be the publication of my sixth book, having been published by Edizioni Punctum (Rome, Italy), self-publishing three artist books and my commission for a how-to book for Medium Photo Festival (San Diego).
