The soon-to-be-released book will begin with two red spreads (below) spelling out “pause | to begin” A nice feature implemented by our designer Josh Gomby.

After the exhibition opening on the 2nd David and I met with Eric Kunsman of Booksmart Studio and Tom Pinzon of New Ridge Bindery to discuss the final details of producing the Catalogue Edition Pause, to Begin Book.
Here is one spread of John Mann’s photos from the book designed by Josh Gomby.
Ethan and I opened the first Pause, to Begin exhibition last Friday, January 2, 2009 at Booksmart Studio in Rochester, New York. It was an enormous success, and we were pleased with the turn out and response.
It was great to see many new and old faces. We both had the pleasure of meeting Tony Bannon, Director of the George Eastman House, whom commented on the high quality of work being shown.
Thank you to Andy Super, Gallery Manager at Booksmart Studio for all the work he did in bringing the exhibition together, and thank you to Eric Kunsman, our publisher at Booksmart Studio, for continuing to support and believe in our project.
Thank you to all our girlfriends and friends who willingly (I swear!) gave up their time to hang the exhibition: Katie, Hannah, and Eric.
And a special thank you to my parents for making the drive all the way from Syracuse in a snowstorm AND staying the entire 3 hours. That’s love.
A few pictures from opening night…
