I have been intently working on some folios (aka collections) for the past couple months. The folios are a unique way to bring some “handcraftedness” back in to what has become the commoditized world of photography. It works like this: I take photos on some subject, group them and print them. Next, I create a custom cover to hold this collection of prints. Think of the cover as old school book making. It’s not a book, but it uses the same concept. Finally, I package each collection and offer it to people that my be interested. It’s kind of a bargain when you see what you are getting.
There are actually quite a few more steps than that, but I think that some images work better as part of a collection than they do on their on. It is also really helpful to have them in context.
These will be offered at the Pro Arts open studios, where I will be showing at Norton Factory Studios. Very exciting.
