The View Project

Monday, January 24th, 2011

The View Project began with renowned photographer Joyce Tenneson asking her friends and colleagues to send her “views” that were significant to them on a personal level. She then collected all of these submissions and carefully edited them into a collection of images for a book and traveling exhibition. Accompanying each photograph is a written description from the photographer describing the image and why it is significant to them. It is this personal touch, along with an interesting and diverse selection of photographers, that makes the View project so enjoyable.

I am also proud to have worked on the design of the book, and am happy to see it make its debut. In addition, I am very happy to have an image of my own included in the book (which was selected long before I was hired for the design, no conflict of interest here I promise).

There will also be a traveling exhibition as part of the project. Here are the dates:
Dec. 18 – Mar. 13 | Naples Museum of Art | Naples, FL
Apr. 7 – 9 | Gallery 27 | Santa Barbara, CA
Aug. 27 – Oct. 29 | Palm Beach Photographic Centre | Palm Beach, FL

And finally, here is a link to an interview with Joyce about the making of the view project: blog.blurb.com
