An incomplete list of what was great about Candela's Indie PhotoBook Showcase

Posted on May 09, 2016 by Ashly Stohl

1. Quirk Hotel decided I was the 1,000,000 member of their loyalty club, and left me a cake, a bottle of champagne, flowers, and...a copy of Gordon's book!!!  Welcome to Richmond, Virginia.

2. I ate fried chicken for every meal except for the one where I ate fried pork.

3. Candela Gallery is an amazing space run by some pretty awesome people.  Gordon Stettinius is not just a gallery owner, and book publisher, but he's also one of us - a photographer.  He has a million great ideas, and is a really funny guy.

4. LISA ELMALEH & MEG GRIFFITHS

5. Eliott Dudik and Jared Ragland working really, really hard while we sat around.

6. Eliott Dudik's John Snow hair.

7. The real grownup at Candela is Ashby Nickerson.  She is half my age, but for the moment has twice the white hair.  By choice.

8. Seeing people light up from looking at Charth Vader prints warmed my cold and icy heart.  Until now, I haven't shown him much, and I forgot how good it feels to watch people enjoy your work.  Not sure I've shown anything that prompted such good feelings in people.  It made me happy.

9. The Charth Vader book was acquired by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, where it will be added to their Special Collections.  Thank you, Lee Viverette!!

Peanut Press x Candela's Indie PhotoBook Showcase

Posted on April 25, 2016 by Ashly Stohl

Peanut Press is taking it's show on the road!

Our friend and colleague, Gordon Stettinius is hosting the Indie PhotoBook Showcase at his Candela Gallery in Richmond, Virginia.  Six Charth Vader prints will be featured in the gallery, and we will be selling limited editions, and the last few trade editions of the (sold out!)  Charth Vader book!!!  

from Candela:

Candela Books + Gallery will feature a compelling selection of work from eleven well-crafted, self-published and small press photography books.
The purpose of the exhibition is to highlight the range of ways independently published photography books are being produced today. As a publisher, Candela is committed to the quality and design of the printed medium. We believe the photographic books on view have an intimate relationship with each photographer's work and make a remarkable contribution to their legacy.
