I'm looking for some photographers and artists to work with on a book proposal about imaginary urban landscapes. I'd like to work with photographers who can take actual photos of Times Square, roof gardens with great skyline views, the Statue of Liberty, etc. and then manipulate those images in Photoshop to create imaginary landscape details with me. I have lots of ideas I'd like to discuss in greater detail along with some mock-up images I've already created and I would be open if my collaborators had ideas of their own. I would be writing essays to go along with the photos based on my experiences in urban landscaping.
Would any of you be interested in working on this? It would be helpful if you already had photos of your own of some of these places for the proposal -- and if we get the book deal, then an advance would help pay for possible trips to nyc or other cities to take more photos and work together in greater detail.
I'm also interested in working with artists (Anthony will be one, of course) who feel inspired to create imaginary paintings, sketches, etc. so please let me know if any of you are interested in that as well. Also, please give me your e-mail addresses so we can discuss. Thanks!
