First off, thanks to Mic for sending this along. This is a book about doing something. This is a book about less is more. This is a book about doing what we can while we can with what we have. This is a book about NOT standing idle.
Mic Warmington’s “Covid19 Shadows,” is a small, thin, non-threatening book that is moody, abstract, and concise. No need to barrage me with two hundred pages of repetition. Just a taste. “This is the time of COVID and I’m going to go do my thing.”
This looks to be Blurb 7×7, softcover made via the Lightroom option. The images are, as I mentioned, abstract, forcing the viewer to actually STUDY. Not just flip, STUDY, which I know terrifies a lot of folks who can’t use their oversized Instagram thumb to flip the pages.
This is a portfolio more than a book. A note, a reminder if you will. As if he is saying “this is happening. I am documenting.” It’s more than I can say. I’m writing blog posts about other people, like Mic, recording but am not venturing out myself.
