We finished a custom book project for the University at Buffalo for a competition. The book was designed by Edgewise Design in Rochester, NY. The cover of this book was made out of plexiglass with leaf skeletons encased in the plexiglass. The spine was created from a Japanese silk. The book block was printed on our HP Indigo 3050 on Mohawk Color Premium 100# Text. The final page had a pocket which held a menu for the competition.
Pause to Begin was a unique project born in discussions about the direction of contemporary photography today. A competition geared towards the emerging photographer, Pause, to Begin selected 15 photographers in April 2008. After a juried selection, the creators of Pause, to Begin drove 10,000 miles to meet and interview the selected photographers about their work. By working closely with a team of artists and an advisory board that includes John Paul Caponigro, Joyce Tenneson and Cig Harvey, Pause, to Begin continues to strive to create a one-of-a-kind experience for the artist and viewer.
