We are proud to present fossils of light + time, a publication of photographs juried by Elizabeth Avedon. Black and white photographs were submitted that best exemplify the theme, a beautiful and seductive quote by Daido Moriyama. A great thanks to all the selected artists whose stunning photographs provided for an engaging and cohesive publication. A special thanks to Elizabeth Avedon for all her efforts and contributions that made this such a special book. We would also like to thank all who participated in the pre-sale as we are thrilled the book generated so much interest and sold out so quickly.

The title of this publication is from a beautiful and seductive quote by Daido Moriyama:
"If you were to ask me to define a photograph in a few words, I would say it is “a fossil of light and time.” 

Moriyama continues to be such an instrumental figure in the art of the photo book, it seems only natural to base this publication on his use of the interplay between extremes of the real and the ideal; bold, stark unpredictable images of life in the streets and in anonymous places. DCCP's "fossils of light + time" exhibition speaks to that space between images not yet taken – memory and photography captured in a 30th of a second. – Elizabeth Avedon
