Light Work Announces 2011 Subscription Program
2011 Subscription Program
Great Art. Great Price. Great Cause. New Benefits.
Light Work is pleased to announce the 2011 Subscription Program, which is full of stunning prints, new and exciting subscription offers, and the award-winning publication, Contact Sheet. For decades, Contact Sheet has been the place where lovers of photography, from museum professionals to avid amateurs to collectors, have turned to see the latest work by important emerging and mid-career artists from around the world. The 2011 Subscription Program introduces expanded benefits and subscription levels.

This year, as part of the 2011 Subscription Program, Light Work celebrates the launch of the online digital archive of Contact Sheet. All subscribers have access to the archive, which can be viewed from computers and web-activated phones alike, and features over 150 issues of Contact Sheet and hundreds of artists. For the first time Light Work is offering a Digital Only subscription, giving subscribers access to the full digital archive of Contact Sheet without receiving printed copies of the publication. Light Work will also offer a limited free trial subscription that will include digital only access to the most recent issues of Contact Sheet.

In addition, all paid subscribers receive the Patron’s Card, which provides discounts at dozens of photography institutions and publications, including free or reduced admission to organizations such as the International Center of Photography in New York City; the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego, CA; or the George Eastman House in Rochester, NY.

The 2011 Print Collectors offer features signed, limited edition original photographs by a group of wonderful photographers, including a stunning Master Print Edition by renowned photographer Carrie Mae Weems, as well as Fine Print Program prints by Scott Conarroe, Yolanda del Amo, and Deana Lawson. These prints may be purchased individually (ranging in price from $300-$1000), or at the Benefactor Level ($1500) which gives the purchaser all four prints, plus a signed copy of the book Carrie Mae Weems: Social Studies, and a complimentary subscription to Contact Sheet (including all subscriber benefits, as well as the special gift of receiving signed copies of each issue of Contact Sheet).

Subscribers who choose the Basic Plus subscription level receive a signed copy of the book Carrie Mae Weems: Social Studies as well as five printed copies of Contact Sheet, full access to the digital archive, and the Patron’s Card. Light Work also offers the traditional Basic Subscription level, which includes five printed copies of Contact Sheet, full access to the digital archive, and the Patron’s Card.

Light Work announces the 2011 subscription program at the same time as the launch of the organization’s redesigned website, as well as the revamping of the Light Work Blog to include new features and giveaways.

Contact Sheet is designed and printed in the tradition of fine art photography monographs with beautifully reproduced color and duotone photographs. It is completely commercial free. Light Work publishes five issues of Contact Sheet per year. Four of the issues are single-artist catalogues featuring work that is exhibited in our main gallery. The fifth issue is The Light Work Annual, which showcases imagery by artists in Light Work’s Artist-in-Residence Program. Light Work is a non-profit, artist-run organization dedicated to the support of artists working in photography and electronic media. Light Work is a member of CMAC, the Coalition of Museum and Art Centers at Syracuse University.

  1. I've always loved this picture, ever since I saw it both at the MoMA and in Doubletake.
