We were pleased to have Michelle Bates stop by the store to sign books when she was coming through Santa Fe on her workshop tour of the Southwest. Her newest edition of the highly successful anthology/technical book on the art of the plastic camera, appropriately titled Plastic Cameras: Toying with Creativity was released late last year in a new edition. This new version is expanded by 32 more pages which includes info and images on new cameras released since the last edition, an updated and expanded resource listing, a chapter on alternative processes and an essay by Mary Ann Lynch. This volume also contains the work of 21 new photographers including Michael Kenna, Sylvia Plachy, Thomas Michael Alleman, Susan Burnstine, Christopher James, Louviere + Vanessa, Jennifer Shaw, and Brigitte Grignet, among many others.
