5 x 7 + Chicago

I'm excited to say the 5 x 7 + Chicago series is finished! Our first in many collaborative series to come. 

For this first series we decided to stay close to home. We chose 3 studios/people representing various mediums in Chicago to develop unique concepts for our format (32 pages, 2 colors, 5x7 inches). We even reformatted to bring the last concept to life! 

Our first book with Debbie Carlos was a wonderful extension of her unique process of wandering and shooting. We selected a small group of photos from her year-long journey to develop a spontaneous narrative for Note Well.

Our second book with duo, Sonnenzimmer, demonstrated the seamless, improvised, mark-making process between Nick and Nadine. The two went back and forth, mark for mark, in A Painting in 31 Marks.

Our Final book with Ina Weise was challenging and exciting. Our standard format did not work with her giant mountain drawings. So, we decided to have the 5x7 book fold out to 7x20 in From Here to Here

All books are now available for purchase at 5x7books.com.

 

Thanks to Brian Guido for the amazing photos!

Note Well

Note Well is a new book by Debbie Carlos for 5x7.

Debbie's photos attempt to capture objects at their moments of greatest clarity: In certain light, at a certain time of day, in a certain place. The method is to wander and notice. Moments of quiet strangeness, patterns of light and shadow, minute-by-minute surprises, changes that don’t happen, something askew, something exactly in place, natural and artificial phenomena, are all sources of inspiration, and the subjects for her work.

You can buy a copy here.
