Second Edition in the can

Posted in Photography at 6:43 pm by Michelle

Four years after finishing up the initial manuscript of “Plastic Cameras: Toying with Creativity,” I’ve finished up the second edition and it’s off to the printer. It’s been a fascinating process of seeing where the world of these cameras has come in a few short years. The book is 32 pages longer, I’ve added 21 amazing photographers, updated to include the newest cameras, more resources and tips and tricks.

I’m thrilled to include new portfolios by:

Sylvia Plachy
Michael Kenna
Louviere + Vanessa
Jennifer Shaw
Brigitte Grignet
Thomas Michael Alleman
Nancy Siesel
fotovitamina – Roasanna Salonia & Matthew Yates
Susan Burnstine
Gyorgy Beck

and work by many other talented photographers.

The official publication is in October, and there will be book release parties in Seattle and in New York during Photo Plus Expo.

I’ll be traveling around lots this fall too, so there will be many chances to get a signed copy: Workshops West in Pismo Beach, CA, Oct 1-3; Project Basho in Philadelphia Oct 23-24; seminar & book signing at Photo Plus Expo, Oct 28-20; workshop and book signing at PhotoNOLA in early December.

I’m so appreciative of everyone who submitted and contributed photographs and information for this edition, and I can’t wait for everyone to see what the best in plastic camera photographers have been up to!
