Exciting news! As promised earlier this spring, we're now ready to announce the line-up of featured projects in this first edition of The Blue Earth Book:

Matt Black "The People of Clouds"
Samantha Box "Invisible"
Samuel James "Niger Delta"
Garth Lenz "Energy and Ecology"
Jon Lowenstein "Shadow Lives USA"
Annie Marie Musselman "Finding Trust" The Sarvey Wildlife Project"
Carlos Javier Ortiz "Too Young To Die"
Rebecca Norris Webb "The Glass Between Us: Reflections on Urban Creatures"

As we get closer to publication, we'll be launching the backer survey to confirm your shipping address and, for those at the $500 or more level, your choice of special "The Blue Earth Book" first edition prints.

As excited as we are to bring the first book in the series to you, don't forget that we can only highlight in this one edition a small number of the many, many projects Blue Earth has sponsored since our founding in 1996. More information about these project can be found at Blue Earth, along with news on current projects and updates from photographers working in the field!

      Hello Waldmensch - Our editors are plugging away in the final steps before we go to press, finalizing photo selections with photographers, proofing narratives, arranging pages... It's not exactly exiting news, but the important creative work that goes into making a great book. We'll have further updates when we print!
