This Is Happening on American Photo's List of 2013 Photo Books of the Year!
All I can say is: Holy smokes! American Photo recently announced their 2013 Photo Books of the Year--five dozen or so volumes honored across five different categories--and This is Happening, the book of Instagrams I not only edited but also authored, is on the list! It's in such spectacular company in the "Reflection" category that I can't resist reproducing the whole "Reflection" list just below (to see the other four fab lists, go here). So many people's amazing hard work went into making this book--both the phenomenal photographers who contributed images, and the super-smart folks I'm lucky to be colleagues with at Chronicle Books. Every book is a group effort, but this one is especially so, making this honor an especially sweet tribute to these loads and loads of talented people.
