PHOTOGRAPHERS' SKETCHBOOKS. Stephen McLaren and Bryan Formhals. Thames and Hudson Ltd, London, 2014. Published in the U.S.A. by Thames and Hudson Inc., New York. 320 pp. with 520 ills. (421 col.). 22 x 30 cm. LC 2014-932788 ISBN 9780500544341 In English.
Publisher's description: Find out how Alec Soth constructs his projects, why Trent Parke relies on old fashioned Polaroids and handmade books, and how forty-one other photographers experiment with new and old technologies, turn their photo diaries into exhibitions, and attract audiences of millions via online platforms. This book celebrates the creative processes of the modern photographic era, in which blogs and Instagram streams function alongside analog albums and contact sheets, and the traditional notebook takes the form of Polaroid studies, smart phone pictures, found photography, experimental image making, and self published photozines. Each photographer presents his or her sketchbook: several pages of images that convey his or her working methods and thought processes. These intimate, one off presentations are accompanied by engaging interviews that reveal how the simple act of pressing a shutter can capture and express a fully realized personal vision. Three essays by the authors explore subjects at the cutting edge of contemporary practice. Designed to satisfy the most demanding of image junkies, this is an indispensable resource for anyone with an interest in photography or the creative process.
