Colors of America

This book traces a 8000 miles roadtrip through the heart of the United States, through deserts, forests, mountains, ocean and glaciers.

Once back from this adventure, our passion for design and photography pushed us to self-edit this book that retraces and tells our journey through the colors of America. We would like to share and introduce you to the beauty of this country beyond the must-see tourist attractions you have probably already heard about. We wanted to dedicate this book to all these wild corners, where nature remains queen and offers us colors that remain imprinted in our imagination.

This project was born from the meeting of 2 artistic directors and a common childhood dream: to make a roadtrip across the USA, to find and photograph the most beautiful landscapes of this country with a thousand colors. After 4 years of shared love for nature and photography, it was during the summer of 2018 that we set off on an adventure.

 

What will you find inside?

 

- Hundreds of unpublished photos

- The locations where each photo is taken

- Anecdotes about the galleys we may have encountered.

- Explanations on how to take a particular photo

- The exact temperature at the time of each photo, for a total immersion


 

Why should I participate?

 

By helping us reaching the €2500 threshold, you will have your name in the book, and you will receive compensation at home: the more you participate, the bigger your gift.

From the postcards from the book, to the art print 60 x 80cm of your favorite photo, obviously including the book signed and delivered in preview. 

For the choice of art prints, I will send you a list of our best photos from the trip, and you can choose your favorite from 25 photos!

 

Who are we?

Alex Celaire

After 5 years of study in artistic direction, I moved to Paris to work as a freelancer. At 18, my desire to collect memories and my passion for nature led me to try photography. 7 years and ten trips later, it became a real passion. 

 

Sophie Laplace

Having done the same studies, we met 5 years ago. I also work in Paris, as a DA in a communication agency. Our common passions and my eye for layout allowed me to help in the design of this book.

Waar dient de collecte voor

Our demands have pushed us to think big, both on printing and on the time spent working on this book. In addition, high-quality materials and offset printing techniques are very expensive. The 86 pages will be printed on high quality matte paper. The thick cover and archival inks will protect it from time. 

Thanks to you and these pre-orders, we will be able to start the production of 100 copies. The total costs amount to 2500€:

 

Entirely self-produced, this book will have required more than 120 hours of work. And we just need one last little helping hand to make this dream come true with you.
