A Year of Mornings

A Year of Mornings: 3191 Miles Apart is a collection of 236 images from Maria Alexandra Vettese and Stephanie Congdon Barnes, two women who live on opposite ends of the country (3191 miles apart) who would take photographs every morning before 10 AM and post them to a blog. It was basically a conversation in photos that lasted a year, and they never discussed beforehand what they were going to take pictures of. The resulting images were often strikingly similar and always stunning.

I was a huge fan of the blog, and the book is a fantastic addition to our library. This would make a great gift for photographers and creative types.
