Lenswork: Seeing in SIXES 2017

Last year’s Seeing in SIXES was such a success, we’re publishing another book in 2017! This book will feature the work of our readers — like you! perhaps you! — printed with the quality you’ve come to expect from us. This promises to be an important and substantial survey of the LensWork community: subscribers as well as non-subscribers.

Since the beginning of photography, the multiple-image project has been a part of our medium. Most famously, the “photo-essay” was a staple of such publications as the long-defunct Life and Look magazines. Of course, here at LensWork, we have a 23-year history of publishing multiple-image projects. We studiously avoid the more common photographic phenomenon we refer to as “greatest hits” photography.

Fees:

Free

Prizes:

2017 book publishing project that will give life to small projects of six images, selected from entries, funded by entry fees, printed with the museum-book quality you’ve come to expect from LensWork Publishing, including both black-and-white and color work.

First, everyone who enters will receive a copy of the finished book later this year — in September 2017. (One copy per entrant.)
Projects must be 6 images exactly (an arbitrary, but inflexible number that places on these projects a haiku-like structure).
Each project will be presented in a 6-page spread in the finished book
A project title is recommended
Other optional components are at the photographer’s discretion — subtitle, a sentence or paragraph of introductory text, image titles or captions, poem, etc.
Each project will include contact information for the photographer (e.g., email, website, Facebook)
