Here’s our sneak preview of the upcoming 2010 ART of Seeing book, due out in April. Published by Alcove Books, this annual photography collection is dedicated to editorial, fine art, landscape, nature, travel, and artistic commercial photography.
Their publications have been described as “stunning” by the San Francisco Chronicle. ART of Seeing offers professional photographers a means of reaching an audience of 6,000 creative buyers, photo galleries, stock houses, and collectors.
Glenn Steiner, an award-winning photographer and lifetime member of the American Society of Media Photography, juried this year’s book. Glenn teaches digital photography and Photoshop techniques at the Mendocino Art Center in California.
The above images, Eau de Vie & Strolling, are from the upcoming publication. The following images were part of the ART of Seeing collections from 2007-2009.
The year 2010 rings in the 20th year of our Columbus Skyline poster calendar, with this year’s skyline framed by Costa Rica’s golden mountains and the jagged Bryce Canyon.
After experimenting with a beta version of Photoshop, Larry created the first skyline calendar in 1991, using Photoshop’s first edition software. That year, Larry also coined the term, photilation, to describe his creative process of combining photography and illustration.
The 1991 edition featured the San Gabriel Mountains in California with a Costa Rican shoreline. Having traveled to exotic locations including Bali, Namibia, China and Ecuador, among others, all stock photography incorporated into each year’s calendar was photographed by Larry.
Intended as a fun piece with a practical application, each year the calendar has been embedded with faces of friends, family, pets and an assortment of other oddities.
In 2000, the Alhambra in Granada, Spain served as the foreground with the Lewis mountain range in Glacier National Park serving as the backdrop. Portraits of local celebrities, Fred and Howard, who formerly owned the Hausfrau Haven in German Village, can be seen in the Alhambra’s arches.
Over the years, Kreber has supplied the color separations, while printing services were provided by Century Graphics, who sadly closed their doors last year. This year’s calendar was printed courtesy of Richardson Printing Corp. along with Millcraft Paper.
In keeping with a tradition started by Fred and Howard years ago, the 2010 Columbus Skyline calendar is available at Hausfrau Haven, located at 769 S. Third St. in German Village.
