WHISKEY BREATH CONFESSIONAL – BY NEIL WHITEHEAD

An Item from the ‘Thirty-Ninth News Update’ of Ruth Rikowski (News Update No.39) 

‘WHISKY BREATH CONFESSIONAL’ BY NEIL WHITEHEAD

http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1356191

My second cousin, Neil Whitehead, who also designed our ‘Flow of Ideas’ website, has just (May 2010) self-published a book on photography, using the Blurb software. By strange coincidence this is the same software that Martin Hodges used to self-publish his little book, ‘Word of Eye’, which I referred to in a previous newsletter.

As it says in the publicity for Neil’s book:

“Whisky Breath Confessional is a visual narrative into the world of Neil Whitehead, an undergraduate to an art photography degree. He is a diligent and observant photographer that searches out intriguing insight into life in the cities of England. The book Whisky Breath Confessional-as the name suggests-shows a confession to an outlook of the artist. Showing a poetic and suspenseful series of photographs that take the viewer on a quiet tour of his environment.”

Furthermore, that Neil Whitehead:

“…is a photographer that pursues opportunities to express emotions, and raise questions and intrigue in all of his photos. His photographs pertain to a style and philosophy that is unique and is growing.”

37 pages of the book can be previewed online. There are some lovely scenes in it, with some very interesting and different views and perspectives.

Neil is currently studying at Southampton University for a degree in Photography.

I wish Neil all the very best with his book, and hope that it sells lots of copies. I shall, of course, be ordering and reviewing the book myself.

An Item from the ‘Fortieth News Update’ of Ruth Rikowski (News Update No.40)

NEIL WHITEHEAD’S BOOK, WHISKY BREATH CONFESSIONAL, BLURB CREATIVE PUBLISHING SERVICE, 2010, ARRIVED IN THE POST http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1356191

We have now received in the post our own copy of my second cousin, Neil Whitehead’s book, Whisky Breath Confessional. The photographs are very colourful, powerful, reflective, convey certain moods and are all on fine quality paper. They include photographs of the sea, trees, the sun, buildings, hedges, roads and of Neil himself. The self-published book was compiled using the Blurb software (Blurb creative publishing service, for self-publishing books) which seems to be quite something. This is a trend that we might well see increasing in the future. I wish Neil all the very best with his book, and hope that he sells lots of copies.
