Book Giveaway: Saul Leiter
I'm celebrating a FlakPhoto milestone — 25,000 subscribers! What better way to say thanks than by giving away some photography books?
What can I say? I’m grateful.
Writing this newsletter has been everything I’d hoped for — a creative shot in the arm, a new way to express myself, and an opportunity to connect with more artists, writers, and imagemakers. So, as we approach the Thanksgiving holiday here in the U.S., I’m reflecting on why I do what I do.
For the most part, I keep returning to you, my readers. You inspire me and turn me on to new ideas every time I send one of these dispatches. So, thank you.
FlakPhoto Digest welcomed its 25,000th subscriber last week. That's exciting! I rebooted my newsletter because I wanted to break my social media habit. That hasn't exactly happened, but I have found a vibrant community here, and I'm having fun. Thanks again for your support and enthusiasm, everyone. I appreciate it.
I’m celebrating this milestone by giving away three copies of the new Saul Leiter Centennial Retrospective. More on that in a minute.
I’m not a hard sell guy, but many of you have signed on as paid subscribers, and I genuinely appreciate that. I intend to keep FlakPhoto free and accessible to everyone, but writing this newsletter takes hours of time and work. If you enjoy my writing, consider becoming a paid subscriber. For $5/month, you can help keep FlakPhoto going. Thanks so much for your support. I appreciate it!
Many of you know that I’m a big Saul Leiter fan. Do you know his work? Leiter was born in 1923 and would have been 100 years old this December 3. I wrote about Saul last year, and it remains one of the most popular posts on the blog. If you haven’t seen it and are just discovering this photographer, please check it out:
So, without further adieu, I’m giving away three copies of the new Saul Leiter Centennial Retrospective to three of my readers this week. The main edition is from Thames & Hudson in the U.S. and the U.K. The book represents all of Leiter’s bodies of work — street photography, fashion images, paintings, nudes, and intimate portraits — along with five essays and a chronology. Reflecting the Saul Leiter Foundation’s recent discoveries, many images are being shown for the first time. It’s a beautiful book and, as you can tell from my picture, a hefty one too!
Win this book!
I want to get to know you better, dear readers. Submission is FREE and easy.
Tell me about yourself in the comments for a chance to win. Where are you based? Are you a photographer? What are you working on? Be creative and have fun with this. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
I'll draw three random winners from the comments on November 27.
Postage costs are limited, so this giveaway is only open to U.S. and Canadian residents. I’ll announce our winners after Thanksgiving. Take care!
