Want to win a copy of the incredible limited edition Photofantasm: Nudedragons to King Ani mal Soundgarden fan created photo book?

With 1000's of photographs with lots of stories, reviews and interviews it' ;s more like a bible! Photofantasm covers Soundgarden photos from the authors (Jaye & Mike English), fans, press, and even from some big-time musicians themselves dur ing the Nudedragons to King Animal era. Over 300 contributors from around the world, including myself. When they contacted me and explained this book was a project benefiting the Canary Foundation, the first and only foundation in the world solely dedicated to the funding of early cancer-detection solutions and that all net proceeds go to charity, I was all in!! Dedicated to our local Soundgarden superfan Tiffany Patterson-Gross who passed away from cancer 2 years ago on September 6, 2013. One of my sections in the book is the Seattle Paramount Theatre show on 2.7.13. Tiffany, sick and all, was present side stage for the show. My fellow photo buddy Stacy Albright caught a photo of her at that show that made the book too. I can't believe how awesome this book looks. It's huge with close to 600 8.5x11 pages encased in it's hard cover. It weights nearly 8lbs!!! Yes, I checked with my suitcase weigher and had my dog Bella double check my readings ha! ;)

   

There are so many incredible photos throughout this book it's a must for any die-hard Soundgarden fan! Well worth the $99.95 price. Remember it goes to charity so satisfy your Soundgarden cravings and help the fight to cure Cancer. Huge thanks go out to Jaye & Mike English. The work, time & money they put into the project is amazing. I can't imagine the nightmare of email and print organization that had to happen. The final project is breathtaking. As good as or better than the classic big rock photo books from the bands of the 60s/70s that I've studied and littered our living room coffee table with. Those are cool, but this addition to the collection is extra special knowing some of my work is majestically displayed in it. What makes me the most proud are pages 528/529. One of my favorite Chris Cornell shots with a special nod to the Seattle Times review, by my cousin and legendary Seattle music reviewer Gene Stout, printed on the same photo spread. If only our passed-on family members could see that! Photofantasm authors didn't even know that family relation so its kinda magical that even happened!


The reviews keep pouring in on how awesome this book is. Check out these:

Rating: "11/11 ... this book was 100% fan created, but it is nothing if not professionally crafted and brilliant in execution, let alone mind-boggling in conception. I don't know how they pulled this herculean feat of a book off..."
- HIGH VOLTAGE MAGAZINE

"Photofantasm is an extraordinary photographic collection... an incredible visual spectacle of the acceleration of Soundgarden. One awesome literary tribute."
