This post was created in partnership with Blurb.

One of my biggest struggles as an artist is figuring out a way to make my work tangible.  When Blurb approached me about working together, I knew this would be the perfect opportunity to watch my photographs come to life.

If we're being completely honest, I struggled trying to narrow down the direction I wanted to go with this book. On one hand, a single volume didn't seem like remotely enough space to contain all that I wanted to print. On the other, creating an entire volume of work whilst trying to juggle my studies (and everything else life entails) seemed overwhelming.

I decided to use this opportunity as a way to compile some of my favorite photos from my recent trip to Indonesia.

The ease of using Blurb's site to create my book was a subtle reminder that I need to do this more often.  I downloaded the BookWright application and used the pre-made templates (with a few small tweaks) to create a beautiful display of my photographs with minimalist undertones.

If lack of time or tech-saavyness has been the roadblock to publishing your work, let me echo the sentiment again: this. was. so. ridiculously. easy.

Stay tuned for the finished product to come.
