Journal intent

I have thinking about this journal for a while, especially as I have tried to figure out if it is a good fit with I currently write. So when publishing a journal, it kinda helps to know who you audience is, eh?

To get to that, perhaps a bit more about me. I read and too often buy photographic books, initially it was the how do you do that stuff (yep, I am a photographer as well), but now it is more about the photographic projects & series that are published as monographs. Books that help you understand a photographers vision, intent, thoughts and feelings and hopefully well printed, sequenced and shown.

And I also get involved with the book publication process, now having self published three books through Blurb, two on projects and one how-to, because I could not figure something out until I published the book (Sharpening Photographs for Blurb printing). And I am in the middle of developing a limited edtion book to be published in conjunction with a limited edition folio of images from a series I completed last year.

So I do not hope to be able to write the indepth and meaningful book reviews of those by Mr. Wisketts (5b4) or availble in Photo-Eye and other publications, I am going to provide my own personal thoughts about photographic books. Thus, I will link the other places you can find some fine writing, which means this will be resource site and a book review site.

And I plan to write about what’s happening with phtographic book publishing, for those who intent to purchase or might want to publish their own photographic work. In other words, random and mumbling about photographic books that will vere off into where ever I seem to take it that day (or night).

Oh, yes, as the publisher of this, I get to shamelessly self promote my own books. Which reminds me, I need to provide a link to my Blurb page for my book In Passing, which was adapted from the same series about my work that was published in LensWork magazine in January 2008.

Best regards, Douglas Stockdale
