Welcome to Issue #6 (September 2019) •
September was a busy month for us with a lot of activities around the LACP Exposure Weekend: book design class by Elizabeth Avedon, the LACP Photographic Book Competition exhibition opening and an interesting book panel discussion. Of course, a few book reviews as well.
We also welcome Steve Harp, Associate Professor of Photography at DePaul University, to our Editorial team with the publication of his first book review, Paulo Nozolino’s Loaded Shine.
Another Resource page that we have been updating is the Book Fairs & Festivals page, which has the various events listed alphabetically and chronological. All the great places to find new books, an opportunity for photographers and publishers to meet new collectors and always a time and place to network (and party!)
Have a very creative Fall.
Cheers & Enjoy

You’re not planning on being in Pittsburgh for the Silver Eye book fair this weekend, are you?
Thanks, we did not have the Silver Eye Book Fair on our list, which has just been update to include this event. Regretfully I have a big commitment that is in conflict for this year’s Silver Eye event, but being from this area of PA, it’s now on my radar.
