Steve Collins has been a friend for several years. We met at a workshop, and he has been a huge part of Project 52. Steve is building his business one client at a time in Fredericksburg, VA (a small town outside of Washington, DC).
I have watched his work grow steadily, and am very proud of this new book – and Steve.
Rock on, Steve… this is pretty cool.
From the Press Release:
“Fredericksburg resident and business owner Steve Collins of SJ Collins Photography debuts his documentary photo book at The Griffin Bookshop and Coffee Bar on Friday. The book release reception will be held from 6 to 9 p.m.
Fredericksburg Today, the title of Collins’ book, features photos of contemporary Fredericksburg. Those who purchase of a copy of the book on Nov. 2 will be entered to win a one night’s stay (double occupancy) at The Kenmore Inn, according to Collins.
A long time visitor to Fredericksburg, Collins relocated to the city in June 2011 from Prince William County. “I immediately fell in love with our town’s history, buildings, people and the sense of community only a city like Fredericksburg can offer,” said Collins.
A photographer, Collins began a personal project to capture contemporary Fredericksburg. The book is the culmination of this project.”
Here are some of his photographs from the book.
