A Field Guide...

i got an email from Garth Risk Hallberg a couple weeks ago letting me know that one of my photos is being used for his upcoming novella A Field Guide To The North American Family.

i found out about Garth's project through a post on Shane Lavalette's blog a few months ago, and submitted a couple photos from my evolving Denali series. i was stoked to see so many great photographers become a part of the program, and even more so to be published alongside the likes of many of them.

in good company- the other contributers:
Jordan Alport, Timothy Briner, Jessica Bruah, Kara Canal, Sandy Carson, Alana Celii, Janice Clark, Jason Curtis, John Paul Davis, Chris Eichler, Amy Elkins, Jason Falchook, Elizabeth Fleming, Catherine Gass, Hans Gindlesberger, Andres Gonzalez, Maury Gortemiller, Jonathan Gitelson, Jennifer Greenburg, Ben Huff, Christy Karpinski, Mickey Kerr, Liz Kuball, Michael Kwiecinski, Shane Lavalette, Jason Lazarus, Stacy Arezou Mehrfar, Nick Meyer, Matt Nighswander, Alexis Pike, Colleen Plumb, Gus Powell, John Putnam, Shawn Records, Rebecca Blume Rothman, Christopher D Salyers, Matthew Schenning, David Shulman, Kevin Sisemore, Brandon Sorg, Brian Sorg, Sai Sriskandarajah, Tema Stauffer, JJ Sulin, Brian Ulrich, Consider Vosu, Grant Willing.


the book will be published by Mark Batty Publishing, and available in June.

also, a note on Shane's blog. he's just completed a streamline of his space, and i'm really digging it, as i've always liked his design choices, and clean style. it's one of my first stops in the morning over a cup of coffee. also check his portfolio site.

finally, you can read some of Garth's writing here, as part of The Millions (a blog about books) blog.

Thanks so much for your note on my blog, Ben (he said, digging your photo, "Rough Night." You've got a cool dog, too.) I'm going to contrive somehow to get a copy autographed by you and by Liz.
