Over 1,000 of the best images selected from the online photo journals
found on one of the fastest growing and liveliest digital communities:
With digital cameras and camera phones, millions of people
are obsessively documenting their daily lives. The fotolog™ phenomenon
transcends national borders, language barriers, and age gaps. From hotblooded
(and sometimes hot-headed) teenagers in Brazil to cool silver surfers
in Iceland, doctors, lawyers, dentists, mothers-to-be, and great-grandfathers,
all these people have one thing in common: they communicate with images.
Organized into themes with quotes and commentaries, this book guides us
to the best of the millions of images and multitudes of words found in
the fotolog™ archives.
fotolog™.book shows us how we see our world, rather than images
that newspapers deem newsworthy, images that marketers hope will be money-making
or galleries judge to be Art with a capital A. It shows us what the fresh
eyes of hundreds of ordinary men and women find beautiful, funny, moving,
or extraordinary. Over 1000 color illustrations. (Hardcover, 344 pp)
