    Bruce Munro creates intriguing sculptures from fiber optics, different light sources, "found objects" such as plastic drink bottles and really about anything he can think of. He had an installation at Longwood Gardens (botanical garden in my town) that I photographed. Sometimes his installations cover acres of ground.

    One of my photos from the installation was selected for the book which was just published.

    Ha ha! NONE of the ones shown on the site. I haven't got my copy of the book yet (though the contacted me yesterday and said it was on it's way) and I don't have any idea where they put it, how large, or anything.

    When I get the book I'll photograph the spread where my photo is. Watch it be like a thumbnail, lol.

    Not a lot -- about $50.

    But I retain what rights I can have to the image. The thing is, since it's an image of another persons artwork, I can't make and sell prints of it anyway so it's kind of moot. On the other hand, they aren't allowed to use it for anything but promotional work and in the book -- they can't sell the image separately... although I can't imagine either why they'd want to, lol.

    Only 8 photographers participated including "staff" photographers so I'm delighted that I got in. Even Bruce Munro himself only contributed two shots, lol. I got one but it make me happy.
