Photos you have taken in the last month of which you are proud?
Best thread ever! It got me thinking (indulge me!)..
In our local library there are shelves of (mostly, but not exclusively older) photo books. Typically of the local area, or topics of interest (industry, scenery etc) to the author. They form a fascinating social, historic and artistic record – of the local landscape and times.
Before photography was so widely distributed, it seems people published small collections/books in this way – often in limited numbers. Perhaps linked by their connections to photo societies, local history, scenery, industry – or possibly professional work as a phtographer.
These are often in a classic documentary or landscape style and format – I notice their was often a connection to local papers, possibly ppl also working or freelancing for them.
I look at many in this thread and see a connection in style, scenes or the circumstances they record (Polarisandy for instance).
So in a digital age, I wonder what will remain of work like this – to pique the interest of others in 50, 100yrs. Flickr et al may come and go. Vint Cerf also spoke about this recently.
So: Does anyone think of what they produce as a ‘permanent record’ or consider the choice of subject in this context? Are any of the clearly skilled contributors here working on, or considering a ‘book’ – (or even still printing)?Posted 2 years ago

Interesting thoughts Bonchance, got a few projects on the go. Will any of them have any lasting impact? almost certainly not. Maybe my negs will be discovered one day in a car boot sale or a loft and recognised as a documention of Cumbria in the 2000’s. Vivian Maeir? Maybe it’s just a grandiose delusion.Posted 2 years agogrumMember
I do make photo books for myself from time to time and sell the odd print here and there. I do like the idea of doing a proper project and making a good book but I’m not sure I’ll ever get round to it.
I think I’m going to get involved in this project in Hebden Bridge which seems pretty interesting:
Not the most exciting photo and sorry to post work stuff but I was quite pleased that this got on the front page of my local paper recently:
