PhotoBook Journal – Issue #28

Welcome to our 28th Issue •

We are hoping you are enjoying your summer holidays and vacations. We are continuing our book sale fund raiser and really appreciate your responses with book purchases and donations. These make a difference and keep us going. Thank you!

I am very delighted to work with Medium Photo again this fall to lead my Zoom creative book workshop, an ideal way to learn the basics of editing, sequencing, design and layout. I will be joined by guest speakers Elizabeth Avedon, NYC designer, and David Chickey, the Publisher and Creative Director of Radius Book, Santa Fe, NM.

Meanwhile, in some parts of the world, the sober realities of climate change continue to haunt us. Likewise the new strain of COVID-19 is devastating, thus when provided the opportunity, get your vaccine jab and save a life.

Paula Riff – works on paper

Earlier this year, we lost a photographic artist with a truly unique vision when Paula Riff succumbed to cancer. Yet this diminutive Los Angeles artist with an outsized personality left us with a beautiful gift… (more)


Mimi Svanberg – Fragments

Abstract art can certainly fuel one’s imagination. When the main attention of a photograph is more diffuse, that is, not so concrete, we can let our thoughts wander … (more)


Vasco Trancoso – 99

No doubt street photography can benefit from some creative new approaches. Gone are the days of garnering attention by showing the ubiquitous downtrodden and certain… (more)
