PhotoBook Journal – Issue #14

walker_04

Welcome!

It’s another month as we continue our different “reopening” phases during the days of COVID-19, although there appears to be changes slowly occurring. I continue to hear of the issues and problems encountered by self-publishing artists, small publishing imprints, indie bookstores and even the larger publishing groups have been impacted. This has been a really challenging time for almost all those whose work is related to the contemporary arts, whether the basic economics of selling something and able to pay the rent or buy food, keeping an arts business afloat while providing support for the staff, and to the individual emotional ups and downs that this shelter-in-place has brought on. So during this time, if you’re able, please support the arts, such as purchase another book or consider supporting a self-publishing Kickstarter campaign while we get through this.

Cheers & please stay healthy and safe,
Douglas Stockdale
