Remember to sign up for the NEWSLETTER if you would like to be eligible for the free stuff. We just want to find out what you like and this is the best way we found to do it. Kind of a win-win.
Love giving these goodies away.
But we learned something.
Time zones can be a problem.
So, here’s what we are doing next week: There will be one item for those on the North American continent, AND something JUST for the NEWSLETTER subscribers around the world. Let’s see how that works. Just trying to take care of everyone with these things.
For those on the North American Continent Only, a great book we discovered last year from Aperture :
Uncovered by Thomas Allen
He takes these pulp fiction novels, creates a 3D scenario telling another story, and the, in a very uniquely photographic way, shoots the scene making an image that will draw you in.
“Inspired by a love of pop-up books, Allen revels in taking on different roles in creating his scenarios: â€œIn addition to being a photographer, I play talent scout, casting director, stage manager, lighting supervisor, and film editor.â€ He photographs these engaging tableaux in shallow focus, rendering his prints with the dreamy effect seen in the View-Master stereoscopic toy that also inspired him.” Aperture
The rest of the world is being offered one of my favorite books ever. [photopress:029thefamily.jpg,full,centered]
The Family Of Man is the book that turned me onto photography at 8 years old. The visual telling of the human condition from birth to death in cultures form around the world is a book that should be in every library. Period. When you click on the link, you’ll see how many books have been written just about the show.
It was first a photographic exhibition in 1955 at MOMA, curated by Edward Steichen. I can go on and on about this book/exhibit and I will during this year.
But you should have this book. We’ll be sending 2 of these to our friends around the world.
And remember: jump around the site and see some of the other offerings, and let us know what YOU’D like to see here.
