co-publishing photobook reviews with photo-eye

Filed under: Books, Photography — Tags: , — Doug Stockdale @ 9:12 pm

A little over a year ago I started to publish my photographic book reviews on The PhotoBook and now some 75 photobook reviews later, I have started to co-publish a few of my reviews in conjunction with photo-eye‘s online magazine, which they publish in conjunction with their book store and gallery, located in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

This has been an interesting journey, from writing an occasional book review on this site, then realizing that I had a lot of books in my library and creating The PhotoBook, a separate blog focused on just photobooks that dealt with projects, series or monographs. There seemed to be enough photographic technical book reviews available and these books were not interesting to me (not that I had not accumulated enough of those books as well over the years). So thanks to those who endured my basic criticism & writing skills early on, which I have found is much akin to photography itself, you need to practice, study, think, reflect and be open to feedback, achieve a certain level of competency, then work like hell some more.

 

17 Days

The first of these photobook reviews is Deanna Templeton’s 17 Days, which can be found on photo-eye here and on The PhotoBook here. For Templeton’s review, the only difference between the two sites are the selection and size of the photographs to illustrate the article. And not too surprising, the photo-eye article is hot linked to their book store to enable a quick purchase. For Templeton’s 17 Days, I believe that photo-eye also has some signed copies.

Best regards, Douglas
