I am the Editor & Founder of The Photobook and a submission reviewer (consultant) for LensCulture. I also provide workshops on the design and development of photographic books, the next one being sponsored by the Los Angeles Center for Photography (LACP), April 1st and 8th, 2017 with more information available about the workshop here.
Singluar Images is where I share my thoughts about photography and personal photographic projects.
I visually explore memory and its preservation. More about my photographic and bookwork can be found at my website www.douglasstockdale.com

Pine Lake is a self-published artist book in a limited edition of 25 released in 2013. My worn and faded photographs became symbols for the remaining bits and fragments of my family memories. Pine Lake is an investigation of what might have been. Pine Lake was selected by New York book designer Elizabeth Avedon as one of her best photographic books for 2014 and is in the permanent collection of the Reminders Photography Stronghold Library, Tokyo, Japan. Last copies of this artist book are available from photo-eye.
Ciociaria is a hardcover photobook published by Edizioni Punctum (Rome, Italy) in the Fall of 2011. It is an investigation into the preservation of memory in a region in central Italy that has neither a defined border or a known history while being a stranger in a slightly familiar land. Ciociaria can be purchased from me directly or on-line at photo-eye bookstore and other specialty fine art and photography book stores.
Limited Edition photographs from Ciociaria were acquired by the Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Roma (MACRO) for their permanent collection of contemporary photography.
In Passing is a self-published hardcover book using the subject of an aftermath project to investigate memory. This portfolio was also featured in LensWork, #74 (Jan-Feb 2008) The hard cover book is out of print and sold out, more here.
Other photobook in print is Sharpening Photographs for Print on Demand Publishing (self published, Blurb).
