Fraenkel Gallery director Darius Himes is also a cofounder of nonprofit art book publisher Radius Books, and was founding editor of photo-eye Booklist, an international quarterly journal devoted to photography books. Okay, now that we have the official language and description out of the way I can move on to giving you the real skinny. Darius is a guy who should have an ego. He earned it. And yet he doesn’t have one. He’s cool. He works at the highest level in his fields or fields. Photography, publishing, art, galleries, etc. He does it well, but also with a sense of humor, and I can’t tell you how great this is. Unfortunately for him, he is my go-to guy for information when my public school, backwater education fails, which is a very common event. Darius also co-wrote “How to Publish your Photography Book” with Mary Virginia Swanson, one of the best books about publishing you are ever going to find.
