Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0500512515, Hardcover)Over 1,000 of the best images selected from the online photo journals found on one of the fastest growing and liveliest digital communities: fotolog™.
With digital cameras and camera phones, millions of people are obsessively documenting their daily lives. The fotolog™ phenomenon transcends national borders, language barriers, and age gaps. From hotblooded (and sometimes hot-headed) teenagers in Brazil to cool silver surfers in Iceland, doctors, lawyers, dentists, mothers-to-be, and great-grandfathers, all these people have one thing in common: they communicate with images.
Organized into themes with quotes and commentaries, this book guides us to the best of the millions of images and multitudes of words found in the fotolog™ archives.
fotolog™.book shows us how we see our world, rather than images that newspapers deem newsworthy, images that marketers hope will be money-making or galleries judge to be Art with a capital A. It shows us what the fresh eyes of hundreds of ordinary men and women find beautiful, funny, moving, or extraordinary. Over 1000 color illustrations.

"Fotolog.net is a place where you can keep your own daily photo diary - a very public diary, if you want it to be. And it seems a few people do. From a handful of members at the beginning, in May 2002, the website has grown almost ten-thousandfold: at the time of publication Fotolog.net had just over two and a half million members from every country of the globe. They've posted nearly ninety million photos. Monumental landscapes and tiny curios. Blazing colour abstracts and black-and-white candids. Mysterious close-ups and spellbinding panoramas. Gorgeous pictures that make you say, 'Yes, that's exactly right'. Startling images that make you think, 'My God, how can that be?' And perhaps the most loving genre: plain, deeply honest portraits of family. You will see the world through the fresh eyes of accountants, zoologists, firemen, architects, students, Web designers, cooks, musicians, health workers. The photographers who weave the fabric of Fotolog are regular men and women from all walks of life who love taking pictures - true amateurs. This book is an anthology of their work." - introduction.
