In recent years, the availability of affordable, high quality, take-with-you-everywhere digital cameras has turned nearly everyone into a budding photographer. And with versatile hosting and sharing sites such as Flickr literally at our fingertips, it is now easier than ever to tap into a massive community of other image enthusiasts.
As an avid amateur photographer myself, I was thrilled when Lark launched the FOCUS series just over a year ago. Each book in this series shines a spotlight on one popular photographic meme, highlighting the variety in which various people interpret that theme. Every unique photograph begins with a point of view, and these books so beautifully demonstrate that each of us look at the world with a different perspective. Jam-packed with hundreds of photos from photographers around the world, each of these books is a testament to the vast richness of our world and the endless ways it can be captured through the lens of a camera.
To celebrate the publication of the newest book in the series, FOCUS: Letters, and to inspire you to look at your world with new photo-hungry eyes, we are hosting a giveaway of the entire FOCUS series. That’s right, one lucky winner will receive the full collection of all four books: Love, Passages, Found Faces, and Letters. To be entered for a chance to win, leave a comment on this post by 9 p.m EDT on Monday, May 23. Any comment will do, but we’d love to hear what your favorite photography subject matter is. One winner will be selected at random and contacted on Tuesday, May 24. Click here for the official rules. This giveaway is closed. We will be announcing the winner here very soon!
