Call: I am in the early planning stages of a book project that would feature Iowa photographers.
I have seven openings available to any photographer who currently lives, or is from Iowa. I would like to have the focus of the work to be fine art or photojournalism, but if there is extraordinary from a different genre, then it will be given full consideration. I have a commitment from one photographer that does wonderful hand-colored portraits, and have already gained interest from a pretty significant photojournalist, whose book I fell in love with the first time I saw it.
Selections will be made the photographers that have made the commitment to the project, whoever many there are at the time. Every new selection we make, adds to the voices that make decisions on who to select next. Once the roster is finalized, the project becomes a democratic endeavor. We all share equally in the decisions, work, and any proceeds that the book generates. All copyrights are kept by the individual photographers.
At this early stage, we obviously do not have a publisher or funding, but I do have some initial thoughts on how to get both.
If you are interested, please send me 10 images and a short biography for review at (brian |@| bfrankphoto.com) with the header “Iowa Photography” for easier organization. Please share this with anyone you think may fit the criteria.
