Short Track - Jake Mendel

Previewed the photographs that will be included in Jake Mendel's "Short Track", soon to be released by Powerhouse Books. Jake gave an overview of the project during the October First Wednesday Salon at Photo-Eye in Santa Fe last night. The project and the photographs received an enthusiastic reception. In fact, Jake's presentation was one of the highlights of an evening filled with highlights. I predict that Short Track may just become one of the Best Photo Books of 2009. There is just something endearing about this easy going Santa Fean (originally from Alabama). And there is something about the work that will inspire me to return to it over and over again.
