Book News: Lynn Seville and Troy Paiva

Two announcement this week regarding night photography books.

First, Troy Paiva's second book, Night Vision: The Art of Urban Exploration, was selected as the Best Special Trade Photography Book of the year at the recent New York Book Festival. This is a great recognition, especially since Annie Leibovitz's Annie Lebovitz at Work took third place. I know quite a few people who own Night Vision, and everyone agrees that it is a "must have" for anyone who is interested in night photography.

Second, Lynn Seville's latest book Night/Shift. This hardcover text includes 80 color photographs, with an Introduction by Arthur C. Danto, art critic for The Nation. Many night photographers may already be familiar with Lynn's first book, Acquainted with the Night. Details of the book tour can be found on Lynn's website.
