For those of you who like my black and white street photographs, I have a book that you might be interested in. It’s my first book that’s available for sale.
The book takes you on a journey through India, the way I experience it. It’s told through gritty black and white street photographs. Starting at the the Bangalore Airport, you see the wonders of my first crazy car ride, my self exploration around everyday neighborhoods, and to a giant bustling marketplace. The book shows everyday scenes from Bangalore, as I saw them throughout the workweek, and a weekend ride though the countryside to the historic city of Mysore.
It’s a whirlwind trip told through one hundred twenty-three photographs spread across one hundred sixty-eight pages. Ninety-six photos have yet to be shown on the blog. Every photo has been re-processed and enhanced with more grain. Previously shown color photos have transformed into monochromes, with dramatic effect. The gritty photos works well with the uncoated matt paper in the trade book format. You can read about how I came up with the optimized design in yesterday’s post.
It comes in two flavors. A physical paperback book and a digital e-book.
A Free Bonus
Regardless of the version you buy, there’s a link to a special online gallery that displays all the photos in a higher than normal resolution. All one hundred and twenty-three pictures in the book are there, of course. But, there are forty-two extra photos that I originally considered for the book, but didn’t make it in because of space constraints. There’s even a slideshow that plays through all the photos.
Friends and photographers that have seen the book have been complimentary. I’ve even sold a few copies and several more are waiting for this link. Most of all, making the book has been a creative endeavor that I enjoyed. I’m really happy with the way it turned out.
