First Proofs

    Newer Older

    Street Photography Now by Sophie Howarth and Stephen McLaren. (Available October 2010 published by Thames & Hudson, London Paris & New York)

    Mmmm... fresh glossy printing ink - on real paper! Which will become a real book! These are the first proofs - and I'm all excited again - even though it won't be published until later this year...

    I know it's a bit previous to be mentioning it, but since there has been nothing good published on the subject for almost 20 years... (since Westerbeck & Meyerowitz's "Bystander" - and now you'd need to sell your grandmother to be able to afford a copy of that) I just can't help myself!.

    Street Photography Now: 50 world class photographers represented in over 300 inspiring, beautiful, extraordinary or simply gobsmacking photographs.

    All to be reproduced on decent sized pages so you can really see the images in detail.

    4 text essays put what's happening now, where it's happening and why into context, and also ask some provocative questions along the way. "A global conversation", where a number of the photographers share their ideas, rap about how they work and expand on why they feel compelled to do what they do.

    And throughout the book there are extensive quotes, pearls of wisdom or simply great little photo related one-liners that'll make you smile from all the photographers .

    Keep your eyes peeled...

    [UPDATE: Since this picture was posted back in January, we have had the pleasure of seeing in-public's "10" published. A great little book celebrating their 10 years of existence available from Nick Turpin Publishing. Some of the in-public photographers are also featured in "SPN"; as we've been calling it throughout the research, writing, design, editing and production processes]

      Fall this year - or autumn if you are in the UK.


      What do you say in Canada?

      Thanks, Johanna! Looking forward to it.

      I don't know what we say in Canada. I'm guessing both ways are OK though. I'm originally from the US and once got into hot water up here when I said "cabin" instead of "cottage." :O

      We say both up here, probably more "fall" now than when I was growing up and "autumn" was more common. She Who Must Be Obeyed better visit this colony and whip us into shape with the Queen's English.
