Inspirational quotes are usually the realm of motivational posters and self-help books, and idea journals the realm of writers (thank you very much) but that doesn’t mean photographers can’t get a piece of that action.
Along those lines, San Francisco-based artist Lisa Congdon has put together a photography-themed journal that is packed full of inspirational photography quotes and over 100 lined pages for you to fill with ideas for your next shoot.
Between 1903 and 1917, photographer Alfred Stieglitz published a quarterly photographic journal called Camera Work featuring the work of important photographers around the world and promoting photography as an art form. Called “the most beautiful of all photographic magazines”, 50 issues containing 473 photographs were published before Stieglitz could no longer afford to continue the publication. Individual issues now sell for thousands of dollars each, but you can view the entire collection of photos for free over at Photogravure.
Thanks for the tip, Felix!
