Jon Crispin's Notebook

American Society of Picture Professionals

Posted in Asylums, Published work, Willard Asylum, Willard Suitcases by joncrispin on 04/04/2013

In March I was contacted by Jain Lemos from the ASPP.

She had seen the Salon piece on the suitcases just as she was putting the finishing touches on the latest issue of their quarterly magazine.  Jain knew that it would be very last minute, but we managed to select images and I wrote 400 words about the project.  I loved her idea of featuring the preservation of the suitcases and contents, especially how the New York State Museum spent so much time and care on the cataloging and conservation aspect.  Yesterday I received a few copies directly from the printer and the story looks great.  They used a cropped shot of the glycerine bottle on the contents page, and as you can see above, eight shots were used in the spread.  The magazine is available only to members, but the story should be up online in a month or so.  It is a really great organization and not just for photographers; many members are picture editors and others who work directly with images in other ways.  If you work with images in any way, it might be a good idea to check them out.
