The Everywhere Chronicles.
Photographs and story by Jamie Baldridge.
21st Editions, 2008.
12 illustrations., 10¾x11½".
To say that Jamie Baldridge is an imaginative genius is to state what will be obvious to anyone who views The Everywhere Chronicles, though readers of the tale he wrote to accompany the photographs may decide he is an escapee from the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. Using sumptuous colors and the most bizarre, sometimes zany, often mystical imagery, Baldridge reveals a world he has miraculously imagined. He then takes us on tour through the whimsical travelogue he has written to accompan his masterful photographs. His guidebook may be a little mad, but his photographs are no collection of elaborate jests and spoofs. They are the stuff of archetypes, and they transport us to mythic places of the mind, of memory, and of histories not yet written.
In a natural evolution, 21ST Editions (a unique publisher known throughout the world for its mastery of classic photographic processes such as platinum prints, hand-pulled photogravure and silver gelatin photographs) has utilized color pigment ink printing for the first time with The Everywhere Chronicles. This is due to the fact that we at 21ST Editions wish to stay true to the original and preferred medium of the artist, who works exclusively in pigment ink and who personally printed and signed each photograph himself. The result is our first color book, one that reflects our decade long commitment to creating the finest photography books in existence, incorporating the widest range of original processes available.
edition of 33 copies numbered 18-50 and 17 Deluxe copies numbered 1 - 17
