The cover of Wavering Light
Iâ€™m not entirely sure how many people here would be interested in this, but for the past eight months or so Iâ€™ve been working on a film photography photobook titled â€œWavering Lightâ€ with Chicago-based photographer, Phuong Nguyen.
Fist fighti-I mean, calmly deliberating the order of the photos
Wavering Light is a unique synthesis of design, writing, and photography working in tandem to create new, unexpected, profound, and personal meaning to whoever is reading or viewing it. As a result, it is an expression and study of many varied and far reaching ideas, themes, and feelings that are important to both of us: loneliness, alienation, evanescence, connection, disconnection, love, friendship, appreciation, juxtaposition, romanticism, idealism, beauty, the nature of meaning, and much more. It is an amalgamation of our individual life experiences up until this point, and despiteâ€“or perhaps as a result ofâ€“the deep personal connection the book has to both of us, we are confident that others will be able to apply their own experiences to each word, each photo, and each spread as well. The book itself is over 100 pages long, contains 65 photographs (most unpublished), and original poetry dispersed throughout.
Shooting photos for the book earlier this year
I'm very excited to announce that we just recently received our final test copy and will be ordering the first edition copies soon! Weâ€™ve sold out of our initially announced 20 signed first edition copies and have decided to extend that to 25 or 30 if enough people express interest soon. The book is likely going to be a little bit over $20 plus shipping. In addition to a signed copy of the book, all first editions will come packaged with bonus material that will not be found in the regular edition. After the first run has been shipped out to everyone, the regular edition will be made available via MagCloud. If youâ€™re interested, let me know here or via PM!
Looking at the first test copy
Iâ€™ll be sure to post any further updates as they become available! If you have any questions or comments please feel free to post them here as well.
