The Unassuming Photobook on Jörg Colberg’s Conscientious

A very pleasant surprise this morning from Jörg Colberg who included a discussion of my artist book, The Flow of light Brushes the Shadow, along with two other publishers, Craig Atkinson’s Café Royal Books (UK) and my buddy Clint Woodside’s Deadbeat Club Press (also Southern California) in his article The Unassuming Photobook on his photoblog Conscientious Photography Magazine.

Although my artist book did not get top billing in his illustration, above, the trailing threads from the pamphlet stitch binding I sew does provide a wonderful clue to the artist book’s presence. Colberg in his article is reflecting on an aspect of the current world of book publishing that encompases smaller non-traditional photobooks, such as mine.

My favorite quote: “Making a book is a good exercise for someone writing criticism. Seeing a book by someone writing criticism is a good way for an audience to see more of that person and where they are coming from.”

Wonderful way to start the week.

Cheers & make every day an Earth Day

  1. With all due respect to Jörg Colberg, I think your “blurry” images are central to the narrative conveyed by your book. Travel, business, the future are full of blurriness, and what can convey anxiety better than a photograph with “unsharp” figures that are therefore themselves full of trepidation?
