Welcome to our Tenth Issue! •
We have just entered a new decade that we are starting with a broad selection of photobooks this month, as well as an interview with photo-documentary photographer and film-maker Louie Palu, who is no stranger to creative book publications.
We have selected a thoughtful combination of published and self-published photobooks that we hope you will find inspiring. Two of which, Alan Gignoux’s Oil Sands and Kevin Bubriski’s Mustang in Black and White, were First Place winners of LACP’s 2019 Photo Book Competition that I was honored to jury along with our Associate Editor, Gerhard Clausing.
Cheers & Enjoy
