Ridderkerk II, 2003 by Raimond Wouda
photo-eye contributor Shane Lavalette has recently announced Lay Flat, a new, ongoing publication project with the goal of presenting the best of contemporary photography and writing on the medium. Issue One: Remain in Light (co-edited by Karly Wildenhaus) will include 20 unbound photographs from an impressive list of international photographers (including Raimond Wouda, Ed Panar, Nicolai Howalt & Trine Søndergaard), alongside text by Tim Davis, Cara Phillips, Jason Fulford, Darius Himes and Lavalette himself. It's unclear if the portfolio format is going to be carried through to subsequent issues or if the production itself is subject to the same ongoing curation as the content, but either way it looks bound (no pun intended) to be a stunning series of publications.
While ordering information and the edition size have yet to be announced, there are a lot more details available on the Lay Flat website including a complete list of contributors, submission guidelines, a newsletter and a way to donate money toward the publication.
