Alphabet featured in Shadow & Light Magazine

How can one not be moved by the opening image for “A?” There are very few images that evoke “Angel” better than two little girls with white dresses and wings. As I made my way through this delightful book I was continually moved by the selection of pictures to illustrate the letters, some poignant and some very humorous. Each is compelling in its own way. Even a fish, which doesn’t usually receive much fine art attention, is given dignity.

-Tim Anderson

There's a wonderful review of Alphabet in the July/August issue of Light & Shadow Magazine. Tim Anderson in his own writing captures the fun and creative spirit of the book. Pick up a copy of the magazine here and a copy of Alphabet today!

Two Paths Press + Creecy

While we still aspire to be known for our photography books, we branched out to support a local museum on the publication of their first book. We started an imprint called Two Paths Press where we hope to do more of these kinds of books - that is, working with small and mid-size institutions on projects seminal to their mission and collection. 

We jumped at the chance to work with the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia on a monograph for celebrated Georgia painter - Hebert Creecy - the most renowned artist of abstract expressionism in the South. The book coincides with an exhibition of his major paintings at the museum. The exhibition is on view until August 20th and it's well worth a visit. 

The book features essays by Dan R. Talley (Professor at Kutztown University in Pennsylvania and co-founding editor of Art Papers); Beth Gardiner Lytle (PhD from Emory University and former MOCA GA intern); Annette Cone-Skelton (Director of MOCA GA and friend of Creecy); and the transcript of a conversation with several of Creecy's friends and colleagues (Shephard Ansley, Alston Glenn, Alfred Kennedy, and Annette Cone-Skelton). In addition to the texts and plates of major paintings, the book features numerous sketches, photographs of Creecy and photographs of his studio. It's truly a tribute to the celebrated painter, and we're honored to be associated with it. 

Some pictures of the book below. Enjoy!

Recap of An Evening of Tintypes!

Our Evening of Tintypes with Kendra Elise was a success. A huge success. Our small office space was packed for 2+ hours. Kendra made close to 20 tintypes in those 2+ hours. And everyone who came had a great energy about being there, having their portrait made and watching the whole process (which became somewhat of a performance art itself!). Below are some pictures from the event - special shout out to our intern Patricia Villafane for snapping these!
