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.
