Lay Flat 01: Remain in Light now available

In an honorable effort to keep things tangible, Shane Lavalette has started a new print publication called Lay Flat and the inaugural issue #01: Remain in Light is now available.

Lay Flat
is a new print publication devoted to promoting the best in contemporary fine art photography and writing on the medium. Each issue is assembled by Shane Lavalette in close collaboration with a co-curator.

Included in the inaugural issue of Lay Flat are four essays, an interview and a poem, all accompanied by 20 unbound photographs from a selection of international photographers. This issue's photographs were co-curated by Lay Flat's editor, Shane Lavalette, and Chicago-based photographer Karly Wildenhaus.

A very refreshing list of photographers, most of whom I've never heard of before. I'm interested to see what the tangible result looks like.
