Among the winners in Photography Book Now 2011 is Zoltán Vancsó. The photographer was awarded Second Runner Up in the Travel category for Ocean of Sighs – Cuba and he was also the People’s Choice winner in the Fine Art category for Unintended Light. However, it’s not either of those books we’re writing about for Book of the Week — but actually the custom Notebook version that Vancsó created based on his Ocean of Sighs – Cuba book.
Fantastic photography aside, we also think creating Vansco’s idea of creating a Notebook is a brilliant way for a photographer to sell their work in different forms, for buyers of all levels. After all, the Notebook version sells for only $19.95, less than half the cost of the book from which it draws its images.
Vancsó’s Notebooks not only show off his work, they also act as inspiration for the people who use them. In fact, it’s hard to think of a travel journal that’s a better catalyst for your own photography than this.
