Book Giveaway: Jennilee Marigomen “Window Seat”

jennileemarigomen01

I’m excited for my friend, photographer Jennilee Marigomen, who is set to release her first book entitled “Window Seat” on Friday, September 26th at Make. The delicate images in the book describe a trip to Mexico in a way that only she could. Her work is understated, and I find the quiet beauty she draws out of each little moment intensely personal.

She has kindly offered to give away two signed copies of “Window Seat” to Booooooom readers. What I propose is that you all hop over to her Instagram @jennileem, have a look around, and then come back here and leave a comment about an image from her feed that really speaks to you.

I’ll let her pick a couple winners on the September 25th, the day before her book is released. Have a look at more images of her book below, and remember to leave a comment for a chance to snag a copy.

Best of Instagram: Week 22

Here’s this week’s Best of Instagram post, a selection of 5 photographers worth following. I’m making a conscious effort here to highlight work that challenges or completely disregards what is usually popular on Instagram.

Guest posters often take over the @Booooooom Instagram, so if you’d like to be considered for a future “Best of” post you can connect with me on my personal Instagram account @JeffHamada. Please, for the love of God, do not tag or @ me in a million photos in a row (one is good enough).

You can, and should, also leave a comment below with a link to your Instagram along with an image from your feed!
