Processed Views Launches on World Photobook Day

Processed Views: Surveying the Industrial Landscape

We finished production on a book of the Processed Views project just in time for #‎WorldPhotoBookDay  -- October 14.Enthusiast Max Yela, Director of Special Collections at the UWM Golda Maier Library posted the work on the UWM blog to kick their celebration.

"Today is World Photobook Day!! On October 14 we honor the 171st anniversary of the publication of the first known photobook, Photographs of British Algae, with cyanotypes by Anna Atkins, published in 1843. The precise date of publication is unknown, so the the date is taken from the official date of entry into the British Library catalog."

"Here in Special Collections, we have a considerable collection of photobook-works. So, to celebrate we are presenting our most recent photobook acquisition, Processed Views: Surveying the Industrial Landscape (2014) by photography collaborators Lindsay Lochman of Milwaukee and Barbara Ciurej of Chicago. Happy International Photobook Day!!!"
