New Up North Book

Up North Book Cover

Photography & Text by Hans Arnold
Foreword by Ovide Mercredi    Design by Nancy Arnold – Kiex fotography & design

My new Up North book has hit the press room and is going through the stages of becoming a new addition on the shelves of all Manitoba bookstores.  The new Up North book will be available October 4, 2013. Nine palettes, 4000 copies, will roll out of Friesens Printing in Altona, Manitoba. This book is as important to me as it is for my graphic artist daughter, Nancy, who has for the last 5 months spent hundreds of hours designing and re-designing the layout for one of the toughest customers in her career. The outcome is nothing short of spectacular. It tells the story in photographic images, of what the province of Manitoba, Canada, looks like from the 50th to the 59th parallel. You can purchase it here.

The First of Many

This is my first blog of dozens to come that hopefully inspire, intrigue, question and fulfill your aspirations in the world of photography that has as many sides to it as the mind has to creativity. It is also my expectation that I convey my thoughts and experience through mistakes and achievements made, and will continue to be made, throughout the evolution of this blog.

” What is really important is to simplify. The work of most photographers would be improved immensely if they could do one thing: get rid of the extraneous. If you strive for simplicity, you are most likely to reach the viewer. “
