Histories of Newark: 1758-2008 & Studio projects Friday March 23 2007 03:17 pm

012 Histories of Newark people photoshoot

A nice design element we’ve built into the Histories of Newark book is a 1″ strip that runs horizontally through the entire book with full length portraits of people who live or work in Newark. This is the poster we printed to put up around town to encourage people to come and have their picture taken.

It took seven runs to do the poster. The colored lines were done about 7 at a time and were handrolled using three different colors each run. The type was a photopolymer and the white background was MDF.

Size: 15″ x 21″

011 Histories of Newark photoshoot postcard

This is the front and back of a postcard we letterpressed which we are mailing out to Newark residents to try and get them to be photographed for the Histories of Newark: 1758-2008 book which Wallflowers Press is designing. The front image shows a general layout with the 1″ strip of people photographs. We hope to photograph at least 3,000.

If you are reading this and either work or live in Newark, Delaware we are shooting photographs on Fridays and Saturdays from March 30th until May 5th from Noon until 8:00 pm. Just stop in. Bring something with you that represents you and dress for you and not the weather.

Do not sit here!

Ray started a set of documentary images of ways people are kept from sitting somewhere.

This was the best one from a recent March 2007 trip to New York City. Basically it says, “Don’t sit here and don’t even sit on the things that say don’t sit here.”

Washington, DC field trip

Good Lead Graffiti friend, Mike Kaylor and Ray went to Washington, D.C. to pick up a nice Kelsey tabletop press. Afterwards they took in the Walt Whitman show at the National Portrait Gallery. The resemblence between the three of us was pretty strange.
