Photo-Editing and Presentation

This book introduces photographers, print-makers, and other graphic artists to the creative possibilities of image editing and presentation. The focus is on how meaning can be created and shaped if the emphasis is placed on the totality of the visual experience rather than by looking at each single image in isolation. In the first instance, there is a discussion of a variety of ways images can be grouped together. This act has implications for how the work should subsequently be presented.

This book is about designs born of necessity; often spontaneously, always pragmatically. It is also about the particular sensibility of graphic designer George Tscherny and his ability to find beauty or art in the most ordinary things, and to communicate this appreciation to others. Experience his infectious enthusiasm for what could be called "anonymous", "ad hoc", or "vernacular" design; for objects that have an aesthetic appeal in spite of themselves; for creations that are both ingenious and ingenuous.
