FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY BOOKS
"A photograph can say 1000 words" they say, but I also believe that telling stories can be done in a compelling ways using a series of photographs displayed in a beautiful and clean designed book.
Over the years, I have designed books for each one of the travel projects I have worked on. It is a process that has helped me think of how to tell stories while I am creating the photographs. It makes me think of a project as a whole and not as just individual images.
As much as I enjoy photographing the subjects in my projects, I also enjoy the process of designing unique ways of presenting them. I feel like a books is a great compliment to an art piece that can be displayed. Books are a great way of telling stories. In the process of designing books, I have to make decisions about how to approach it; for example I would have to think about telling a story in a chronological way or perhaps tell it dictated by a clean design that reveals a portion of the story bit by bit.
The design of the books have to let the photographs speak for themselves. That's why I usually tend to create minimalistic design that will compliment the photographs, rather than overwhelm them.
