The Seven Cities

A project by photographer Matt Eich in conjunction with The Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art.
The amazing and incredibly sweet Barbara Tannenbaum, Curator of Photography at the Cleveland Museum of Art, giving proof no. 2 of “The Invisible Yoke” a thorough examination over breakfast at The West Point Market in Akron, Ohio on February 8, 2014. The book maquette encapsulates more than 8 years of work into four chapters. It is edited by @mikedavis_syr and designed by @dpdavis. After a final proof we will print 12 copies through Conveyor Arts. One copy for me, one for Mike and Deb, five copies will be sent to potential publishers, and five copies will be made available to collectors with a signed and numbered 11x14 print for $1500. Keep yer ear to the ground for more information soon. #akron #ohio #ohio #barbaratannenbaum #curator #cma #clevelandmuseumofart #theinvisibleyoke #bookproject #maquette #proof #lifeblood #intheworks (at West Point Market)
