I am the juror and editor of a new book, RICH COMMUNITY: AN ANTHOLOGY OF APPALACHIAN PHOTOGRAPHERS, due for release to the public on June 21, 2015, from Sapling Grove Press. The cover photograph is copyright by Lisa Parker. I am the Art Director and a co-founder of this new, independent publishing company. We released a call for entry to Southern Appalachian photographers in late 2014, and have produced this new book in the spring of 2015. This book includes previously unpublished, innovative, and progressive work from 82 Southern Appalachian photographers, along with a short bio, web/contact info, and an artist's statement from each contributor. Many of our contributing photographers are SPE members, such as Diane Fox, Sarah Cusimano Miles, and Bridget Conn, to name just a few. Our hope is that this book will be recognized as a great reference collection of contemporary photographers, and provide networking and exposure opportunities for all involved. The book can be previewed and purchased through a link on our web site: www.saplinggrovepress.com.
