PMA Roundup

Uwe Steinmueller will give us a quick update on everything that was announced and displayed at the Photo Marketing Association conference in Florida this week.

California Earthframes

Uwe Steinmueller of Outback Photo will discuss the making of his latest photo book, “California Earthframes”.

“Our photos of the last 5 years were taken about 95% in California. On the other side these photos are not typical for travel guides or even introductions to California. In early 2003 we started calling some of our pictures Earthframes.

Originally we limited the term Earthframes to abstract nature photos. Over the time we felt that most of our pictures could be called ‘Earthframes’ and also include urban elements (the name was our creation anyway). So we came up with a title ‘California Earthframes’. We think the title does not mislead expecting a travel guide and yet gives the book a context. Overall we feel that this book is a homage to California.”
