“Let Me Stay” – a “Devil’s Ivy” (Golden Pothos) plant peering from behind the blind on our landing window, lit from below to create the shadow – was selected from entries in the “Still Life” competition for inclusion in issue #99 February-March 2020 of F-Stop Magazine (“an online photography magazine featuring contemporary photography from established and emerging photographers from around the world”)

Un’opera da esporre un libro da conservare (A work to exhibit a book to preserve)
My entry “Into The Dream”, based on my image “Out Of Obscurity” – I’m sure Pink Floyd fans will recognise the references 🙂 – has been selected from 213 entries in the First Arthink Book Photo Contest as one of the 60 to be included in their permanent A-Book Photo collection
A different challenge, this one – Arthink specialises in “Format innovativi per la diffusione delle arti visuali” (“Innovative formats for the dissemination of visual arts”) – what they call “picture books” or “Art Books” containing images in three sections which “can, if necessary, be closed and stored in a bookshop; when it is open it becomes a painting, a work of art.” Works can be three individual photos linked together to tell a story, or a single image which lends itself to the format; long/tall and narrow and convenient to split into three parts, either horizontally or vertically
The First Arthink Book Photo Contest ran from May 20-July 22, with “the A-Book format dedicated to photographers, conceived and produced by the same publishing house along the lines of the A-Book Image designed for Artists and illustrators. 60 works have been identified that will permanently enter the A-Book Photo collection, which will be promoted on our social networks and on the site; temporary exhibitions are also scheduled, which we will give more information soon.”
In the meantime, the Art Book featuring my image is available to purchase: https://arthink-editions.com/en/works/c172/ ; the page also includes my description of the photo in English and translated by Arthink into Italian
“Airport” (coming in to land at New Zealand’s Queenstown Airport, in a Cessna 206), “Lagoon” (water taxi from Venice across the Lagoon out to the airport) and “Flight” (shadow of an aircraft wing at Manchester Airport) – have been selected for inclusion in the August-September 2018 “Land, Sea, Air” issue of F-Stop Magazine (“an online photography magazine featuring contemporary photography from established and emerging photographers from around the world.”)
