Examining the ever-encroaching advances in surveillance, BeSeeingYou explores the disappearance of privacy in public and private spaces. The book contains images of strangers and suspects, as well as the cameras themselves, both in real life and on television. With concerns about intrusions into our personal lives, and the normalization of mass surveillance, the book raises questions that come from the claustrophobic sense of being constantly observed.
Sheri Lynn Behr began her career photographing musicians during rock and roll’s glory days. She then explored Polaroid SX-70 manipulations, and is currently included in The Polaroid Project, a book and traveling exhibition. Behr’s photographs are widely exhibited, at institutions including the Griffin Museum of Photography, the Amon Carter Museum, and The Colorado Photographic Arts Center. Publications include Harper’s Magazine, People’s Photography (China), and The Boston Globe. She received a 2012 Fellowship in Photography from NJSCA, and a 2018 Puffin Foundation grant.

Fingerprints in the Dirt examines the complex relationship with people and nature, specifically in national park and forest lands. The land “belongs” to the people, and is maintained with
people in mind, but conservation and preservation efforts often replicate natural processes that have been previously interrupted by human intervention, begging the question if anything is untouched by humans at all. It is handmade using pamphlet stitching on a modified accordion cover, while interior pockets contain poetry “impressions” and a colophon.
Vera Benschop is a photographer and book artist currently living and working in Denver, CO. She received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2017. Her work had been exhibited in Chicago, Denver, and internationally in Paris.

MUSE offers a contemporary twist on the historical relationships between women referred to as muses and the artists they inspired. The photographs of the artists and muses were reworked to enhance a somewhat surreal quality. Each pairing is set against a background that is either geographically correct and or fits in a psychological manner. All of the subjects in this historically based series are from an era in art during which the muse was considered to be a source of great inspiration. While each of the pairings became famous and often –romanticized Hall Brown strove to peel away the veneer by placing them side-by-side as the people they were.
Leslie Hall Brown is a fine art photographer and psychotherapist from the USA. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. She was awarded the 2016 Prix de la Photographie Paris (PX3) Best New Talent Award for her body of work entitled MUSE.

Through scenes of ‘infinite’ variabilities and repeating motifs, this work explores spatiotemporality, the subtlety of gesture and the subtlety of difference in a moment when frameworks of relationships are at once prominently visible and exhaustively hidden.
Mike Callaghan’s art practice focuses on fragmentation, rearrangement and reinterpretation — considering the intimate cycles of identity, self-preservation and mortality. He earned an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute.

A photozine of automobile reflections that separate, warp, yet can combine distinct structures from the organized chaos of New York City. A vehicle’s surfaces become sectional canvases: alternate universes grounded in the same reality; a metaphor of the interplay between our self-perceptions within the world we inhabit, and a world distorted by our subjective perceptions.
David H. Curtis first embraced photography in his native London. Twenty-five years later, in New York City he reconnected with his photographic eye, zooming in on cityscapes, including vehicle reflections, as well as street portraits and urban narratives.

This sequence travels in its narrative through a polygonal movement between the figure of a father, embedded childhood, the weight of ancestors, and the anxiety of existing in this universe, in its immensity. The sensation that emulates is of being an expanding receptacle recognizing the distance towards the coordinates of an occult map and profound family constellations that are the source of an existential drama. The prism, as a synthesis towards all this personal search.
Clara de Tezanos is the co-founder of the Contemporary Photography Center La Fototeca and the GuatePhoto International Festival. de Tezanos has played an important role in the movement of contemporary photography in Guatemala and the region by dedicating herself to the creation, management, curatorship, and teaching of photography.

On one hand, this book also calls attention to our present day assault on “reality” and our news media by our current president.

“Jeff Evans’ Guide” is a version of “William Eggleston’s Guide” for Champaign-Urbana, Illinois showing 32 photos of ordinary things that are out of the ordinary — such as a clock without hands and a sidewalk that ends at a phone pole — and their locations marked on a map.
When Jeff Evans discovered that his job as a rocket scientist wasn’t as exciting as he thought it was going to be, he took some photo classes as a creative outlet. Soon he was going to galleries and collecting photo books to learn more. But the best way of learning he found was taking lots of pictures.
Though his career wasn’t creative, it still managed to influence his photos. The attention to detail and appreciation of the absurd that he developed on the job are combined in his photos of everyday subjects that are out of the ordinary.

From the moment you slide 21 Magnolia Rd. from it’s inter-office envelope and begin to turn pages you are aware that secrets are unfolding. Kev Filmore’s childhood story is being revealed as you pull cards, art and vintage imagery from envelopes and folders. As Cig Harvey states in the afterword, Kev makes objects. Tactile pieces to hold and pause over. Starting often from a photograph, vintage or her own, she layers paints, pens and pastels to complicate what is already difficult. This book speaks of family secrets buried, childhood trauma suppressed.
Over the past year 21 Magnolia Rd. was featured in a solo exhibition at Davis Orton Gallery as well as group shows at Griffin Museum, Center Forward and Tilt, Candela, Soho and PhotoPlace galleries. Her series received an Honorable Mention in the 2018 12th Julia Margaret Cameron Awards. Rhode Island Art Center for Photography will have a solo exhibit of the work in May 2019.

Born in 1947 in San Diego, California, Sandy Jo Lloyd was presented with her first camera at eight years of age. The intervening years between her first camera and today were spent studying at the Old Globe Theatre, in Actor’s Quarter, the first avant-garde theatre in San Diego and the Actor’s Theater of Houston. Sandy is now, many years later, living in Houston, Texas working in analog black and white photography. Her ability to visualize stage drama brought Sandy’s interests back to the camera and to studying at Glassell Art School. Sandy is currently working on a number of projects that include personal introspection. Her primary projects deal with the death of her son and exploring still lives, specifically the Vanitas.

Roddy MacInnes has been teaching photography at the University of Denver since 2001. He considers himself to be an autobiographical photographer, and in this capacity, he has been documenting his life through photography for over five decades. He received a Master of Fine Arts in photography from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and a Bachelor of Arts in photography from Napier University in Edinburgh, Scotland.
His book “Family Album”,was inspired by an album of photographs he discovered in an antiques mall in Denver, Colorado. A North Dakota woman (Nina Weiste) made the photographs in 1917. Nina’s photographs triggered a search that became deeply personal. They created a lens through which he could examine how family memories are constructed and reinforced, and they allowed him to extend that understanding to his own experiences.

hard cover: plexiglass slip-cover (with removable rubber-band binding)

The photographs in this book are all computer-generated negatives from digital photographs taken at night during one summer. In analogue photography the negative is a latent, ethereal twin to the positive image. Positive/negative, (now/then, absence/presence) are very much a part of the language of photography. My mother passed away from ovarian cancer shortly after the summer photos were taken and for three years I contemplated that space, a seeming in-between or transitional space where she was absent but also still closer than ever. In this series the “digital negative” felt analogous to a shadow realm (or kind-of ghost presence), with the full moon doubling as universal symbol for the feminine, and simultaneously sun/ black hole.

# of photos: 26 plus 1 archival, collector’s print, “Today’s Lesson”
edition of 25
“The Book of Hours” is part of the series, “True North,” photographs that track the shifting snowdrifts and blue of long, drawn-out dusk, or flat light of day in deepest winter, Finland. The double-sided book pages reveal parallel sequences tracking the movement of light — on one side is the view looking in through a window, and on the other, looking from the inside out — as it travels across the panels. In one sequence, light not only travels across the wall but the camera frame travels across the pages of the book. The title of this book makes reference to the most common type of devotional book popular in the Middle Ages. Like the practice of meditation, these photographs ask the simple question, “What happens when you pay attention?”
The Nude at Home – Pinhole Camera Images

I use traditional 8 x 10 black-and-white film in a homemade oatmeal-box pinhole camera to create wide-angle distortions with the cylindrical focal plane. By then replacing the black-and-white values with subtle hues through successive pulling of curves in Photoshop, I interact with and interpret the image. In the “Nude at Home – Pinhole Camera Images” series and book, I photograph the model nude in her own home, apartment, or studio, surrounded by her possessions for two-minute exposures. It is a collaboration between model and photographer, the images attempt to reveal an intimate portrait of the subject.
I earned an MFA in Photography from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1970 and I have been photographing the nude, exhibiting that work and teaching photography for nearly 50 years. I currently head the film photography program at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY.

Linda Morrow can say that photography is in a sense her voice and often her meditation. She retired early from teaching college English in order to focus more on the visual image, which may explain her interest in book-making. She has in recent years begun working with alternate structures for the photobook such as the concertina, the pivoting panel, and the map book.
Several of her award-winning titles are held in private as well as public collections, namely the Joan Flasch Artists’ Book Collection, School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) and the Griffin Museum of Photography, Boston. Her intention always is to make pictures/books that inspire the mind and engage the heart. She is an Arizona native who has lived for decades in Long Beach, CA.

Arrangements throughout suggest faces, the objects intimate an inner agency–there is a constant suggestion of encounter, although almost nothing distinctly alive appears

The Louvre Museum fascinates and terrifies me in equal parts. Works that have survived several centuries face people who visit the museum and refuse to look directly at them. Contemplation has given way to an accumulation conducted by means of all sorts of digital devices, generating a new way of staying and being in the world, a transformation of the art experience that points towards a profound modification of human nature.
