Well this will get your friend’s attention. A new photography book by Cole Barash featuring the floating one himself: Craig Anderson. The book is debuting this weekend at the New York Art Book Fair at MOMA and is published by Deadbeat Club. We’ve long been huge fans of Cole’s work — you might remember his zine “Talk Story” starring John John a few years ago — as well as numerous appearances in the pages of What Youth. The photos are very intimate, very beautiful and the design in tip top. Portraits, still life, shapes, color, Craig, in and out of the ocean and around his closest friends and family.
There are very few of these things being printed, so you’d be wise to hunt one down soon. We’re lucky enough to get one shipped overnight thanks to the good people at Hatteras Press in New Jersey, who hustled us one (because yours truly penned a little ode to Craig in the center gatefold) and because we couldn’t wait to make it part of our library.
If you’re in New York, be sure to get some ink on it from Cole himself Saturday at the Deadbeat Club booth [B07] at 3 p.m.
