I was honored to have these two images selected for fotolog.book: A Global Snapshot for the Digital Age, published by Thames & Hudson in 2006. The book was conceived by a group of intrepid Fotolog members with ties to publishing and design interests. It contains 1001 images, a sampling of the wide variety of subjects found in the photography posted on Fotolog, and is organized into sections focusing on geographic areas, themes that unite disparate members' postings, and some individual photographers. It's a wonderful book that contains a tremendously diverse range of photography. The book was edited by Andrew Long with essays by Nick Currie, aka Momus.
Fotolog is a photo-sharing website, one of the first such sites to attract a large and international following. I joined when there were fewer than 5000 members, after reading an article about the site in the New York Times (there are over 31 million members as of this writing). I had a lot of fun posting images and meeting people there in the mid-2000s. After a couple of years, the website became a victim of its own success and performance problems frustrated many long-time users such as myself, who moved on to Flickr. However, the site eventually righted itself and I am sure the many people who use it today enjoy it just as much as did/do the contributors to fotolog.book.
