Book project: The Road to Alaska
Coming in May 2015! A photo story featuring travel photography and portrait photography from an extraordinary road trip to Alaska.
This time a year ago I was driving across the Oregon/Washington border and steadily making my way north. My destination was Alaska and I spent the better part of three months there exploring its incredible landscape. I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be publishing a book on Blurb of these photographs to celebrate the journey! It’s titled The Road to Alaska.
In this digital age with the proliferation of cameras and the barrage of images on social media, we often forget about the value of a printed photograph. The tactile feel and experience of viewing a beautifully printed image that isn’t backlit by LEDs and validated by the number of “Likes and Shares”. It’s just paper and ink. To hold in your hand. When printed there and presented with intention and skill, the image viewing experience can take on a whole new meaning. One that will quite possibly affect the viewer more deeply and profoundly than any HD retina screen ever could. The printed version will also be around a lot longer to enjoy as well. I digress.
It’s been far too long since I got my hands dirty and produced a printed portfolio of photographs like this. That is why I’m waxing poetic and so excited to be working on this project. Please stay tuned for more details. I will be intentionally keeping costs low to more easily share and enjoy the book with everyone.
Stay tuned. More details to come!
