It’s been a true pleasure to be a part of Paul Kenny‘s working life over the last six years or so. To date, the cherry on the cake was being asked to make the edition prints for his upcoming book, Seaworks 1998-2013.
Over the years, regular readers of this blog will have become very familiar with Paul’s work. If you’d like a little reminder, type his name into the search box towards the top right.
Set for a release date on 15th June, Seaworks 1998-2013 is being published in three forms by Triplekite Publishing — the standard book, a Special Edition and a Luxury Edition.
The Special and Luxury editions contain prints that are signed, numbered and embossed by Paul. To cap it off, the book is introduced by one of the finest writers on photography, Francis Hodgson.
I understand that pre-ordering of these editions has been brisk to say the least. If you’re a Paul Kenny fan, this is the ideal time to stake your claim to a copy of his beautiful book.
You might be aware of the prices Paul’s work commands at Beetles+Huxley in London, in which case you’ll also realise that this is a great chance to acquire two very accessibly-priced prints.
“The work, building on themes developed over thirty-five years, tries to find the awe-inspiring in that which is easily passed by. It contains issues of fragility, beauty and transience in the landscape: marks and scars left by man and the potential threat to the few remaining areas of wilderness. Looking at the micro and thinking about the macro, I aim for each print to be a beautiful, irresistible, thought provoking object.” — Paul Kenny
