Photographer Sean Perry turned me on to a website called “Area of Design” that is featuring a wonderful interview with him currently on the home page, with samples of his work and his artists book Transitory. (I interviewed Sean about “Transitory” for the forthcoming Fall issue of the Photo-Eye Booklist; I’ll post when it is on the stands.)

It’s mission statement: “Area of Design is an organization that showcases established and emerging artists, designers, commercial firms, and non profit groups based in the United States.
