Heavy — III.
It is with much excitement that we announce the upcoming release of Heavy Volume III, the third instalment of our ongoing journal series.
Heavy III spotlights work and words from 17 contemporary photographers and writers. Through the dialogue between artist & author, the dissemination of ideas & photographic process is explored, landing firmly at the confluence of where images are made and how they are read.
Heavy III aims to contribute and further the discussion of contemporary photographic practice by providing an accessible platform for the digestion of image and text on the printed page.
Featuring contributions from:
Gregory Halpern, Jo Ann Walters, Lindley Warren Mickunas, Matthew Genitempo, Nico Krebs, Rinko Kawauchi, Sam Contis, Taiyo Onorato and Zhang Kechun.
Alana Celii, Dan Rule, Daniel Boetker-Smith, Echo Guo, Emma Phillips, Nich Hance McElroy, Nicholas Muellner and Sara Knelman.
Why we need your support
The entirety of this project is handled in house while collaborating directly with the artists and writers involved. Heavy does not outsource any elements of the design or editing and every cent of the funding from this campaign will go directly to the physical production of the book.
The Heavy Collective is operated on weekends, coffee breaks and train rides home, and is funded by the pay checks of our not so photographic day jobs. Your support allows the continuation of this project, any assistance in keeping this Heavy engine rolling is a huge help and greatly appreciated.
We understand not everyone is in a position to donate, but you can help us spread the word by sharing this campaign around the web and on social media. Sharing is caring and it's just as valuable. Thank you from The Heavy Collective team.
Who we are
The Heavy Collective is an Australian online/offline platform dedicated to the showcase and discussion of contemporary photography. Through publishing, exhibitions and online media THC illuminate the practice of image making and its ability to represent and reflect our lived experiences.
Risks and challenges
The greatest challenge with any finished book is shipping, we endeavour to get Heavy Volume III in your hands as quickly as possible and are confident of the task. If we've gained anything from shipping our first two Volumes, it's a well oiled postal operation.
