We created our Mob-Entrepreneurs section many moons ago, this is a select area and we only choose to mention projects that we truly believe in. It reflects the work of mobile photographers and artists who are pushing the boundaries of their talent into other areas. This could be workshops, app development, exhibitions anything that draws in others to our magical world.
This time we are featuring a KickStarter project by a very talented mobile street photographer, David Ingraham. He has created a book ‘Lonesome City’ that he describes as ‘culmination of over five years of extensive photo-shooting in the streets of Los Angeles as well as other cities around the globe’. Ingraham goes on to explain that ‘this collection of images can be viewed as a visual meditation on the universal theme of urban isolation and disconnection’. I think that’s a theme that will appeal to many and can be the very reason that people spend time interpreting images.
Conceptualised and designed by the photographer, this book will be produced in an edition of 700 copies, printed in rich duotone on high-end matt paper with a printed-wrap hardcover. (75 copies will be made available as special limited collector’s editions.)
Ingraham has set a target of $22,000 and so far he has reached $7,555 of this goal with 92 backers and 23 days to go. Pledging $175 will result in one signed and numbered limited Collector’s Edition of Lonesome City as well as a custom-printed and signed 7×7 archival pigment print. There are plenty of higher and lower pledges available. If you would like to find out more about this project, please go here.
