It’s Finally Out: A Little Printer That Delivers A Tiny, Custom Newspaper http://t.co/EtbnvaPE
A Utah based photographer named Matt McDaniel recently launched a Kickstarter campaign (it was a success!) to fund the making of a book that would feature his grandfather’s lost and never seen before photos. His grandfather was an amateur photographer, but captured wonderful pictures and memories throughout his life.
I supported this project and think you all should follow along on Dean Bullock website as Matt creates the book.
My name is Matt. I’m a photographer based out of Salt Lake City, Utah. I am so very fortunate to have the honor of scanning and archiving all of my grandfather’s negatives, slides, polaroids and prints. My journey all started a few years ago when I found a stack of 8x10 prints buried in the basement of my Grandfather’s house. Being a photographer myself, I was immediately drawn to them, and realized that he had something special, a talent and eye for photographing that I could only dream of having someday. I took the prints home and scanned them, for the sole purpose of preserving them for our family. Not too long afterwards, my grandfather, Dean expressed his desire for me to have all of his photography equipment. I knew he had a lot as he was a pack-rat and kept everything he ever owned. At some point we decided that I would also be getting his photographs so that I could preserve them as I had with the first few that I had seen. That was fine with me, it would be exciting and an honor to do so. After looking through his photographs, slides and negatives, I began to realize that people other than family would be interested in seeing Dean’s work. It would be a shame for his work to go unnoticed to anyone other than family. I decided I would create a book of his images, which would be a tremendous amount of work, but definitely worth the effort. I was inspired, and still am, by the work of Vivian Maier and the notoriety that the project surrounding her work received through Kickstarter.
