I recently found Trouvé magazine by stumbling on the site which was made using a template I developed for the Squarespace platform. Pleasantly surprised by the style of the site and especially the look of the magazine, I had to order Volume One. Here a few take aways from my experience with this magazine over the weekend.
Everyday I commute from Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn into SoHo, Manhattan to work. Mornings are the perfect time for me to practice the craft of photography ... mind is fresh, air is crisp, the light is dramatic and the sidewalk might be clean. On occasion, I'll hop off the J train at an early stop and walk a little bit – just to let the street speak to me.
I wanted a good way to share my mobile photography of New York City with my Mom back home in Missouri. My folks don't really spend time on the web, so clicking a link to an Instagram feed, VSCO Grid or Flickr stream was not the way they'd prefer to experience my photography. And there is no way I was going to consider dumping them all into an email either...so, I decided to send them a photo book.
Crated launched to the world with a gallery event at the Soho Arthouse in New York City. The event was a big success with art from over 500 Crated artists on digital displays and sample prints up on the gallery walls. I am proud to be one of the artists they selected for this group exhibition. *sniff of confidence*
