Personal stories in Photo Books

Photo Caption: The front cover of the book “It’s All About Her”.

There are stories everywhere. Some stories are personal while many could be news worthy and headline grabbing. I always loved stories that have a personal touch to them. Some of my documentary projects utilized a style where I followed the lives of few individuals to highlight larger issues. I worked on these stories as an embedded journalist rather than a passive observer. With a protagonist being at the center of the story, the audience can be effectively drawn into the heart of the story. I have always found this to be an effective style to communicate deeper issues. Anyway, here is extending that style to some personal projects. The subject here is my wife. And this Photo Book project was conceived to gift her something special while introspecting our early years together. The subject of Love and the Lover are both an inspiration for many photographers. I am no exception. Here is the link to view the book
