Land, ho!

Captain's log, March 14th 2012...
I'm proud to announce the safe arrival of the good ship Ambiguous. Passage has taken just over 12 months and taken in a number of ports around the globe. Progress had been constant, only becalmed around the turn of the year. The crew are a disparate bunch but all shown great endeavour in our enterprise.
Yes I imagine many of you believed this mission had proven the world really is flat, and fallen off it, but you are mistaken! I had little idea this project would take the time it has but I'm still incredibly pleased.
Looking at all the images submitted since last March is a walk through a family album of sorts. In the same way a snap of a childhood day at the beach prompts reflection beyond the frame on the circumstances of the event, each participant in the Ambiguous Book Project has not only given up an image but also some real insight into their lives. For me the ideas I've harboured around the meaning of images and the interpretations they are open to has been wonderful to explore.
Now we enter the Book part of the project. I've been working on layout ideas and will be shortly contacting all the participants with details.
Prepare for landing!

  1. Congratulation & Good luck, i am sure this would be a great book. Since now all the images are together a context has emerged, i suggest the contributors should get another chance maybe to change text or choose poetry to go along image, ideally from the place where the photo happened so we can have a sample of poetry from around globe as well.
