To the printer!

Posted by Harvey Wang (Creator)

Yesterday, From Darkroom to Daylight was sent to the printer. Alan Trachtenberg the author of Reading American Photographs: Images as History, Mathew Brady to Walker Evans and other writings, and professor of American Studies at Yale University contributed this quote for the back cover:  

What all photographs have in common is the essential role of light and light-sensitive materials in the production of an image, but there are many routes toward that end. This collection of interviews and personal narratives, accompanied by Harvey Wang’s splendid portraits, offers a revelation and hence an invaluable record of key issues in how and why photographers today choose to go one way or the other, toward film or digital methods, toward darkroom or daylight.

The book is going to be a beautiful and an important document of what has happened in photography over the past few years. Thanks again for supporting the publication of the book. I look forward to sharing it in the spring.
