F-stop Portfolio Issue

If you have an extra moment today I suggest for you to use it by taking a look at this month's issue of F-stop magazine - They featured a few intriguing portfolios that caught my eye. Also, as a side note, if you happen to browse through the group exhibit you may stumble across a few of my photographs that were published with the issue!.

Word for word

Michelle Anderson Photograph. "Roots"

Browsing through The Photographic Dictionary is my most recent favorite pass-time. It's an expanding bunch of images by contemporary photographers that define dictionary words with visual language. Somehow there's a real cohesiveness with all the pictures, which i love, and what i love even more is that most of it is film rather than digital. If it was up to me (which, i suppose, it actually is) I won't be buying into digital for a long time, if ever! I think it's about the tangibility of film, the series of chemical reactions it takes to create a photo, that makes it superior to digital and so appealing to me.

Blog (and photo book) under way

So I am convincing myself that I in fact will find a summer job, while simultaneously thinking of other alternative options in the back of my mind. Options such as self publishing a small photo book to sell; selling prints; selling lemonade, etc. As well, I am refusing to allow myself to waste any amount of the endless free time I have, and will do so by writing and recording my work here (plus others' work I find motivating). 

As for the photo book though, that is a thought I've had for a long time and intend to make happen soon; profit really being irrelevant (obviously)! It will include my most recently finished project. A peek:

If any body knows of any good publishing/printing companies, I'd appreciate/love recommendations!
