Photographs from Transplant, a collaborative project between John Wynne and Tim Wainwright. Book designed by Fraser Muggeridge.
I saw this beautiful and moving tome when I was working at a book fair for Atlantic Press Books. It seemed not only wonderfully put together but a great mixture of image, text, and sound. Also, the collaborative nature between different types of practitioners is interesting. A sound artist, photographer and graphic designer have all come together to produce this. Worth noting that it was a 3 year project too. Phew. Here it is being reviewed in Grafik magazine. Transplant was funded by a variety of organisations but makes it clear that no NHS monies or resources were used.
If Caitlin and I continue to pursue the Small is Beautiful project, this type of work could be a good guide and inspiration. Wouldn't it be great to have a book and DVD of a similar nature?
