St. Louis, MO – On May 1 2015, Susan Hacker Stang launched a Kickstarter campaign for reAPPEARANCES, a limited edition photography book containing a series of photographs shot with a digital toy camera, a visual and cultural journey through appearances.
“In the summer of 2012, I began working with a quirky toy digital camera, a JOCO VX5, made in Singapore,” the creator explains, “Little did I know that it would become the catalyst that would bring together the various photographic approaches I had been working with over the past forty-five years, photographing people and places, using toy cameras, and combining images into sequences. But it certainly did.”
Susan Hacker Stang is a photographer and a photographic educator who just retired from Webster University in St. Louis after forty-one years of teaching. During that period, she helped found and build the photography program in the School of Communications there.
Meanwhile, she remained an active photographic artist, exhibiting and publishing, with work in over twenty-five museum collections as well as numerous private collections. Stang studied with Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind at Rhode Island School of Design, earning a BFA in Photography in 1971 and an MFA in Photography in 1974. Now she has turned to Kickstarter for help funding hew newest project.
“reAPPEARANCES is a series of visual and cultural connections across one fifty-image sequence. I have shown it in various museums and galleries, in groupings of twos and threes, but it truly belongs as one complete sequence in book form,” Stang says, “This is what I plan to produce if my Kickstarter campaign is successfully funded. I will produce a high quality numbered limited-edition hard cover book, 500 copies.”
In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of rewards including one of the 3.5 x 4.25 thumbnail prints used in originally sequencing the book for $25, a signed copy of the limited edition book reAPPEARANCES for $55, one of seven 13 x 19 printed and signed reward images for $300, and more! Backers of this Kickstarter campaign can also pledge to receive copies of Stang’s previous publications.
