the 4×2 photo project – and giveaway!

can i just tell you, beloved readers, how much i love the internet? certain websites exist that are so empowering, and through the tools of one of them i am pleased to announce to all of you the 4×2 project. it’s a culmination of a year-long personal photography project that i embarked upon in 2008 with my dear friend sandra soss. for the project, sandra and i challenged ourselves to take one photo a day for one month from each season of the year, a photo that represented that particular time of the year, and how we experienced it in our daily lives. the collaboration challenged us creatively and the results were frequently charming and complimentary. when we finished the project, we decided to take the best 40 shots (10 images from each season, from each of our collections) to create a 92 page, full-color soft cover book. you can find my shots on the left hand pages, and sandra’s on the right.

now, a year after the production and post-production work is complete, we are very satisfied with this creative endeavor that we nurtured for so many months. we plan to distribute the book, which is available for $34.95, through blurb, my etsy shop, sandra’s etsy shop and perhaps even some local bookshops. we also plan to release select prints from the book as well as postcard sets in the upcoming months.
