We are excited to announce 3 new titles.
This first is our newest group endeavor, PETTY THIEVES FOUR: COAST TO COAST.
Featuring 42 photographers photographing what Coast To Coast means to them.
This will be released at the LA Art Book Fair, January 28th- February 2nd, but it can be pre-ordered now. (Pre- orders will not ship until February 5th.)
This project will also be a more long term projection show, but we are still working out the details, with more news to come soon.
DEAR OLD MAN OF THE EDGELANDS is a study of one thousand miles together on old American highways in late summer. A travelogue of peaks and valleys, wide skies and short sentences, small details and big feelings. This is the story of where we were traveling from. We still don’t know where we are traveling to.
Last but not least, our very own Nathaniel Grann has a new zine.
SOMETIME BLUES + WITCHES BREW is a collection of images and writing from the past year. Feeling stuck within self-assigned pressures, and a generic melancholic state, this zine is a homage to that never-ending nagging in the back of your head that tells you things could always be worse and to those short-lived moments you wish you had camera for.
Happy New Year everyone! It seems 2014 is already going to be a good one and we’re thrilled to keep this train moving with the announcement of who will be included within our newest Petty Thieves project – Petty Thieves Four: Coast to Coast. Check out the artists and their work below:

In other news, Petty Thieves Number Three was selected by Larissa Leclair, founder of The Indie Photobook Library, as one of her favorite photobooks of 2013 for Photo-Eye’s annual end of the year lists! Still hard to believe that one, but we know we couldn’t have done it without all of the support thrown our way over the past few years. So thanks again and we promise for a ton more good times in the coming months.
It’s that nostalgic time of year to think back and reflect as another year comes to an end. E.S. has a ton to be thankful for as 2013 was our biggest year yet, so thank you to everyone for all the continued love and support. If all goes to plan, 2014 is set to follow suit and we couldn’t be happier.
Here’s the official call out for our next group zine. We will be in Los Angeles for the LA Art Book Fair & that is where this will be released. Loose theme of Coast to Coast. Please email all photos to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are also trying to do a bi coastal projection.
We will be back with updates soon.
We are proud to announce the release of two new zines.
The first has been a long time in the making. I traveled with We Were Skeletons, all across America, as well as parts of Canada & Europe, & my new zine “I’m Alright To Drive” is the culmination of endless hours in a van. Photographs & stories from the past 5 years, 56 full color pages, 6×9 inches, & hand numbered & signed in edtion of 100.
We also excited to announce the release of Jani Zubkov’s zine “This Is Not A Dark Ride” I met Jani through band friends & we have interviewed him here before at Empty Stretch & now we would like to present his 24 page full color zine, documenting often forgotten pieces of America.
Both are now available in the Empty Stretch Store.
