from f - eleven book , image by Dave Rudin
The first collaborative book of f-11 was simply named f – eleven .
We were not sure if we were going to make another book.
But since then we have received a lot of heart warming feed backs that has made us to go forward with this project.
The main concepts of these big volumes of f – eleven books, are going to be hidden in the act of making them … a subtle statement against the typical photography book collections out there.
We won’t try to please a very specific group or taste. We’ll try to show case solid photography works made by our own members in any genre, compiled in a coherent to semi coherent design. ( f-11 is a private photography group. to apply please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org )
In our “big” (I’ll explain later what I mean by that) volumes, we’ll try to bring a rather diverse collection of images in various styles and from different genres together and yet try to make a subtle sense of connection among them.
This could be a rather ambitious plan but for now, that would be the main concept of these bigger f – eleven volumes.
On the same hand we will try to donate the profits of each book’s sale to a charity and promote such charities’ causes along side our books.
Now to explain the difference between big volumes and other potential volumes :
There might come a time that we feel like promoting a singular concept or style such as street photography, editorial fashion or fine art nude…in such occasions we will put smaller issues together but we still try to compile a variety of points of view within those genres.
The profits of those smaller volumes will also go towards different charities…the only difference would be their contents and their smaller sizes.
Come along with us in this exciting journey…support us in our goals to create new conceptual values for photography books while supporting a variety of worthy charities.
Thank you for all of your supports.
