LensWork Monographs

About these downloadable version Monographs

LensWork Monographs are independent, stand-alone, book-length publications featuring the work of one photographer or a single theme. Monographs are produced in color or black-and-white. Each volume in the series is 72 pages. The state-of-the-art, museum-book quality printed versions of our LensWork Monographs are mailed to subscribers, three books per year. We only print enough to fulfill our subscription list. Essentially, we are instantly "SOLD OUT."

We are thrilled to now offer digital PDF versions of these books to LensWork Online full-access members as a FREE DOWNLOAD. These downloadable PDF versions will ensure that you have access to these terrific projects and images long after we no long have inventory of the printed version — especially exciting news for new members of the LensWork community!

If you are interested in the printed version back issues (we often have just a few) or in subscribing so you don't miss any of the printed versions, more information can be found here.
