Alan Messer Visits Genesis
08 Feb 2008
Nashville-based photographer Alan Messer has recently been in the UK to finish the photo-edit of his forthcoming limited edition book on Johnny Cash.
Published by Genesis Publications in collaboration with the estate of Johnny Cash, the book will feature a mixture of iconic portraits and previously unseen photographs of The Man in Black taken between 1976 and his death in 2003. Many of the images are remarkably candid and feature Cash with his family and friends who will also be contributing their thoughts and memories to run alongside the photographs.
Sifting through Alan's remarkable archive has been a pleasure, but choosing which photographs to leave out has been almost painful at times. However, whats not in doubt is that the final picture edit is a collection of quite incredible photographs.
The book, in typical Genesis style, will be printed on fine art papers and hand-bound in leather. Strictly limited to 2,000 copies only, it is due to be published this summer. Click here to read more and and to register your interest.
