The Photographer’s Playbook

I encourage you to read this book with the lightness suggested by its title. A “playbook” is not at all dogmatic; it’s more like a map. – Dan Abbe

The cover is BUMPY. And it’s a coooool project. The Photographer’s Playbook; 307 Assignments and Ideas features photography assignments, as well as ideas, stories, and anecdotes from many of the world’s most talented photographers, artists and authors––including John Baldessari, Tina Barney, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Jim Goldberg, Miranda July, Stephen Shore, Alec Soth, Tim Walker, Harrell Fletcher, Susan Meiselas, and many, many more. The book also features a Polaroid alphabet by Mike Slack, which divides each chapter, and a handy subject guide.

Edited by photographers Jason Fulford and Gregory Halpern and published by The Aperture Foundation, this playful collection will inspire fresh ways of engaging with photographic process.
