Thank you so much for including this on your blog!!
It’s a great project :-)! And a necessary one…
Thank you Kurt!!! I really appreciate your support and interest in the series.I hope to get it published, if I can just find a publisher.
If you have difficulties to find an editor in the United States (I don’t know how strong the pressure is already on publishing houses) – I think there are well-known publishing houses in Europe. I can imagine that Steidl (https://steidl.de/) would be interested… BTW, I am bookseller ;-).
Thank you again!! Wow you are a bookseller, wonderful! I have been trying to figure out the steps for gaining publication, but it is very hard for a novice to transverse. I will certainly look into Steidl and hopefully they will have interest. A huge thank you for the suggestion!!!
I did, and I’m happy you don’t think I’m a novice. I was thrilled with the Photonews article. It is such a beautiful publication.I just looked at Steidl and talk about impressive!! They have published some of the best photo books ever. So do you have any suggestions for me as to how to approach them? I would appreciate any help you could offer…These are new waters for me.
I think the best would be to contact them directly. The article in PHOTONEWS is a good point of departure, I think. I will write a mail to you later – I will think over how to proceed, OK?
Great, thank you Kurt, I will wait to hear more from you. I have the submission process for Steidl, as in what they require and an email address. Thank you for the suggestion to sight the Photonews article.
The interpretation of my last post missed what I was trying to say, I thanked you for your suggestion to mention the PHOTONEWS article.
