Photographer Bill Mudge came round today for tea and cake and to show me the mockup and layouts for his new photobook 20 in 15 – The Lives of Artists. It’s looking great! He has spent the last year photographing twenty very different creative people and organisations, including me in my studio. One of the best bits of the project has been getting to know Bill and his lovely family over the last year. His photography is quiet, reflective, imaginative and precise – much like Bill himself. The costs of designing, printing and publishing the book are being crowdfunded through Kickstarter. At the time of writing the campaign is nearly 60% funded and not quite halfway to the finish date. It’s doing well and just needs a final shove to the line. Please share or pledge if it sounds interesting to you.
Whether or not the book gets funded, there will definitely be an exhibition of the project in March at the Mine Gallery in Carshalton (5th to 27th March). As well as the photos, each of the artists are also contributing their works to exhibit.
