Preorder “All of A Sudden”
By Ray Napoles
Often standing in a place struggling to reconcile how everything happened the way it did, Ray Napoles's All of a Sudden is a depiction of the artist attempting to put those pieces back together. Napoles's use of 35mm and medium format photographs span a number of subjects throughout the project. Whether they be street-side memorials, flowers, and friends along the way. These subjects come together to create the book's overall feeling of mystery, loneliness, and misplaced emotions. The poetic nature of Napoles's images come together to create a dream-like depiction of the photographer coping with the reality that comes with mortality. Debuting 11/23.
A collection of sad clown cuties by Izzy Valle.
“Frown” is an 8X8 inch perfect bound book printed in full color which will feature over 40 pages of photography by Israel Valle. All photographs featured were shot on Mamiya C3 and C330 with a mix of Lomography and Kodak film. Debuting December 2019.
Inland Empire based photographer Israel “Izzy” Valle developed his shooting style through experimentation, YouTube tutorials, and lots of wasted rolls of film. If you see Izzy in the wild concrete jungle go up and say hello, he’ll gladly talk your ear off about photography and more than likely take your picture.
