Book Project by DPI Alums Bonnie Briant and Collin LaFleche

unnamed


For the past several months, Bonnie Briant and Collin LaFleche have been working with the photographer Bob Walden to put together a book of his photography, culled from his career as a legal photographer in the New York City area for over 20 years. They have a KickStarter campaign to help raise the funds needed to produce this book.

The project was also recently picked up by Dazed Digital.

KickStarter projects are only funded if the goal is achieved. Without the support from this campaign, the book will simply be impossible for us to realize. We’re aiming high because we want to print this book beautifully, in a large edition, so that it’s available to a wide audience. We hope to have your support — any amount you can pledge is so appreciated.

There are a range of rewards in return for pledges at various levels—including postcards, books, limited-edition prints, and even pizza with Bob himself. There’s something for everyone!

Getting the word out to as many people as possible will be crucial in the success of this campaign and the project.

Many thanks from Collin and Bonnie

Book Launch: ‘Dance of the Weave’ by DPI Alum Briana Blasko

blasko_640

DPI alum Briana Blasko (’99) has been living in India for the past 5 years and has now produced a book entitled Dance of the Weave, a Dialogue between Traditional Textiles and Dance in India, published by Penguin India. Blasko’s book documents the forms and aesthetics of classical, folk and tribal dances from across India.

She … visited weaving villages, documenting the dancers’ costumes and textiles, and how a dancer inhabits textiles and plays with fabric through movement. By highlighting the drapes that are used in dance, Briana shows us how even a single piece of cloth that is used is still relevant in India. Her photographs celebrate textiles as well as the aesthetic of those who wear them. (http://www.penguinbooksindia.com)

Blasko’s work on this project has also been featured on the blog TimeOut Delhi via Two Brown Girls .
