I am pleased to announce that I am one of 36 photographers Blue Sky Gallery has published monograph books for its 40th year celebration. My Inside the Gate series, exhibited at Blue Sky this past January, is featured in monograph #26.
Visit BlueSkyGallery.org/books to preview and order.

From Blue Sky announcement:
“Blue Sky has, on this day, simultaneously published 36 monographic books by 36 great photographers that we’ve shown over the last four decades. These books are available only on the internet and they are startlingly cheap. (They’re about one quarter the price of most photo books today.) This series of books are produced and distributed by harnessing the power of internet age print-on-demand capabilities and the combined social networks of Blue Sky and the 36 photographers. It’s the dawn of a new way of creating Great Books by Great Photographers at Great Prices, powered by elbow grease (an artist specialty) instead of huge piles of money (not an artist specialty). Check out all 36 at www.BlueSkyGallery.org/books and spread the word.”
