Remember back when RESOLVE and Andy Adams brought together that month long series of cross-blog discussion on THE FUTURE OF PHOTOBOOKS? Well, good discussion shouldn't die out because of an arbitrary timeline. To keep that conversation flowing, I interviewed three photographers I admire: Jason Fulford, Alec Soth, and Richard Renaldi, about the forays each of them have taken into publishing. Part one is right here on Too Much Chocolate.
