…I see these small projects as a visual cousin to the haiku or six-word story — a compact expression of a single nature, possibly a story, definitely a theme, held together stylistically, and making a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. Tight, distilled to the essentials, impactful, deeper than what is possible with a single image.
In 2016, editors Brooks Jensen and Maureen Gallagher decided to create a vehicle for presentation of six-image projects, and published the juried book Seeing in Sixes. They published a second volume in 2017.
The upcoming book - to ship in late September, 2018 - is the third annual volume in the series. If the first two volumes are any indication, it promises to be a beautifully printed selection of diverse and fascinating contemporary photographs.
The review at What Will You Remember? includes several of the wonderful and diverse images images at all three festival venues.
