This week 'Get the Picture' photo agency, based in Paris, France published a limited edition book.

With a print run of only 200 this wonderful sixty page collection contains a broad selection photographs from six of its members, including myself and edited, designed and produced by Damien Lafargue, who has done a beautiful job putting it together.

From the Introduction:

"Get the Picture is a cooperative which provides a platform for a group of like minded photographers with the common objective of fostering mutual support, gaining exposure and a following for their personal and conceptual work.

This diverse group consists of a broad and distinctive range of ages, locations and experiences. Despite stylistic differences all are wanderers, and each in their own way share the need to make sense of a strange and often hostile world. These bodies of work take place in an intimate theatre of elaboration, in a completely personal time frame. The different series presented here explore a range of approaches each with it's own identity and particular narrative, random collections of signals and signifier's. Although each individual follows his own rules, this selection of works demonstrates how much they cross over."

The book contains work by these photographers:

. Harvey Benge
. Pascal Fellonneau
. Simon Kossoff
. Paul Kwiatkowski
. Damien Lafargue
. Philippe Taris

This book is available to buy at a reasonable price from 'Get the Pictures' website, where a preview can also be seen.

Thanks so much. I wish you a happy Thanksgiving.
