Chew to vote!

Designer/ entrepreneur Joe Gebbia has sent us some cereal for consideration. In addition to being a designer (see his work here for CITIZEN:citizen) Joe is one of the founders of AirBed & Breakfast, an innovative service for peer to peer lodging, says he, "Recently many of our guests have been campaigners for the upcoming [US] national election. Because we encourage our hosts to make their guests comfortable, by providing breakfast for example, we had some fun and made a promotional cereal to capture the spirit of the times.". The Obama O's and Cap'n McCains are limited edition, only 500 of each were created and they're all numbered. We want to give away a set of boxes, maybe two. All you have to do is leave a comment and tell us what your favorite cereal is and why. We will use a highly unscientific method to select the winner - the "best answer". Be civil.

A Book Full Of Nudes

Is a working title of photographer Christopher Voelker’s long awaited book of nudes and other abstract works of light & shadow. With an emphasis on studio nudes Voelker has been shooting images in a style that incorporates movie lights & other non conventional means that are a voyage to a bygone time. His viewpoint of B&W along with a smattering of color Voelker’s way of seeing is dark ,light and always a departure from the typical. Film is still part of the process, as each book will come with a hand made fiber print that is archival and signed as well.
Dennis McMillan publications is proud to be publishing this work & it’s Voelker’s noir style that attracted McMillan to this endeavor. The book is slated for November 08 coming to a bookstore near you or at
