After almost eight years of writing the Dodge & Burn: Diversity in Photography History blog, I’m proud to announce that the next iteration of this endeavor to document a more inclusive history of photography will soon become a book.
As of May 2015, I’m in contract with Routledge (an imprint of Taylor & Francis) and the book is tentatively titled Diversity in Contemporary Photography. The book, like the blog, will largely consist of photographer interviews, but will also include other chapters on photography collectives, photographers working in new media and more.
Although on a limited publishing schedule, as I write the book, the Dodge & Burn blog will continue to be a resource for photographers and photo educators with new interviews (read the latest one with Kalen Na’il Roach) and other critical writing. I am currently in the process of updating the blog design and branding.
Also, if you’re a local NYC photographer looking for feedback on your work, consider coming to the Dodge & Burn critique group which meets monthly at various locations.
Stay tuned and as always, thanks for being a Dodge & Burn reader!
