Middle Ground – reimagined

Middle Ground, limited edition artist book, copyright Douglas Stockdale I am very excited to 'relaunch' the selling of Middle Ground, my limited edition artist book that I self-published in 2018.

Time Travel

Copyright Douglas Stockdale I am using some 'down-time' between pitching my book-dummy for Instant Nomad to a few publishers for me to reconsider my edit of the book's content.

Last month I wrote about my current 'Cover-19' series inspired by Quantum Mechanics and particle physics that explains some of the things we see if we... Continue Reading →

China rough edit completed

I am a bit compulsive and even when I have few other things to do, I still deferred to work on the rough edit of this body of work. Which is now done. Whew! So the final tally is 190 photographs winnowed down from the original 4,000 photographs I made while in China. Not all... Continue Reading →
