The book team finally made the selections for the 7 themed galleries in the book (TOYCAM -Lo-fi Photography). We received just over 650 images from around 100 photographers for consideration for the book. The team spent 5 months selecting images and designing the layout of the galleries. Every member that had a vote was very passionate about the images they wanted in the book and there were many heated discussions. In the end this book can only be said to represent the broad range of photography appreciated by the team as a whole. These images may not be the best of the best, but they do represent the range of likes of the members of the book team and we think and hope that the galleries make sense as a whole and provide a range of interpretation of each theme. While you will have to wait until the book is published to judge the results here is a list of the photographers selected and a link to their websites (if they have one).
Congrats to all selected! And a heartfelt thank you to every single photographer that took part in this project even if you didn't have an image selected. I can't begin to tell you how many beautiful images were left out of the book for no other reason than we just didn't have room.
