Eugene Richards and Other Southern Photographers in Print -- Late Fall 2014
Honorary Southern Photographer Eugene Richards had to fund the publication of his most recent book through a Kickstarter campaign, but Red Ball of a Sun Slipping Down is beginning to show up on multiple lists of the best photography books of 2014.
The New York Times lists it here, Time lists it here, the Wall Street Journal lists it here, and I have a feeling this powerful book will show up on more such lists as the end of the year approaches.
In the meantime, other Southern photographers have new books, or books in process.
Laura Noel has started her own publishing company, called All's Fair Press, and its off to a booming start.
Her books Withdrawn and All's Fair Volume One were selected to be part of the Filter Photo Festival in Chicago, September 24-28, 2014.
Others of her books, Law & Order Gets Me Through the Night and Killing the Day, Volumes 1-4 were selected for the InFocus Juried Exhibition of Self-Published Photo Books, held at the Phoenix Art Museum Gallery for the Center for Creative Photography, August 23- September 28, 2014.
Some books to look forward to:
Kathleen Robbins' forthcoming book Into the Flat Land has already been announced and will be out in January.
Lori Vrba will publish her book The Moth Wing Diaries with Daylight Books in the spring of 2015.
And I am sure there are others -- if folks will let me know their plans and publication schedules, I'll add them to this list.
