talks to Carol Golemboski (NYFA Fellow in Photography, 2002) about her new interactive artist’s book for the iPad,
Psychometry, based on her photographic series of the same name.
"The pictures in Psychometry are designed to be
mysterious, foreboding and ironic. I wanted the interactive book to have
a little bit more whimsy and to be as much about the creative process
as the images themselves."
Psychometry recently won the "Outstanding E-Book Achievement" award from the Independent Publisher Book Awards. Congrats, Carol!
