Book Description

Aug. 1 2012
Here are the final results of The Tattoo Project, works by 11 fine art photographers with a variety of styles who shot portraits of 100 heavily tattooed individuals. The brainchild of photographer Vince Hemingson, the event sequestered models and photographers in Vancouvers Photo Workshop for a multiple-day shoot. Thousands of portraits were produced that aimed to explore who each of the subjects was through their ink and the photographic process. This volume features more than 200 images from the event and truly reflects not only who the subjects are, but who the photographers are as well. From differing approaches to lighting, mood, and color to different methods for engaging the subjects, each of the artists clearly has a unique vision. This is an ideal book for photography and tattoo art students, teachers, and enthusiasts.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must buy for any Vancouver Photographers Nov. 2 2012
By Matt
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you are a learning photography in Vancouver, BC you will have crossed paths with many of the feature photographers and even many of the models. It is quite an interesting book from the perspective of seeing how each photographer approaches similar subject. The only downside is Andrew Tripp, who is probably the the best portrait photographer around, did outstanding photos profiles of the featured photographers but didn't do his own series of the models.

Worth while and I am hoping to see more like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Book by a Fabulous Photographer Jan. 29 2014
By Robert Baxter - Published on Amazon.com
Vince Hemingson is not just a gifted photographer. He is an authority on the art of tattoo. But Hemingson's skill is not limited to selecting quality tattoos or snapping pictures. As this book details, Vince planned and produced a complex event (the actual photo shoot), topped off by a stunning gallery show (attended by over five hundred enthusiasts, all the artists who contributed to the book and the hundred or so models)... all beautifully documented in this impressive volume. This is a major achievement, which, it is fair to say, only the multi-talented Hemingson could have pulled off. Something special for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Display of Art and the Human Form April 24 2014
By Peter Andersen - Published on Amazon.com
This is a wonderful collection of images from an eclectic and talented group of portraitists. I very much enjoyed the variety of each photographer's vision and expression of their style and technique. This is a book that demands and easily justifies its coffee-table book size, with each image large and exceptionally printed. It is a great addition to any art or photography lover's library.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of a Kind April 11 2014
By Cathy Kurtz - Published on Amazon.com
I really recommend this book. This is a big book, with real heft, and the photos are beautifully reproduced. The publisher did an excellent job. The book is original, and the product of a really interesting concept. The idea of having a dozen fine art photographers shoot the same group of a hundred tattooed subjects resulted in an utterly intriguing body of work. I would have loved to have seen the gallery exhibition. The work is quite uniformly strong, and each of the photographers approached their subjects in completely different ways. Some of the subjects were shot by multiple photographers and look completely different from portrait session to portrait session. This book will appeal to both photography enthusiasts and tattoo fans. It's the perfect book to add to a tattoo shop collection. I would have liked to have learned more about the people being photographed, and apparently the Tattoo Project is also being developed as a documentary film, which I would love to see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can Tattoos Be Fine Art? Feb. 8 2014
By PJ Reece - Published on Amazon.com
Tattoos are (arguable) fine art. But when fine art photographers start shooting tattoos, there's no doubt about it. Although I had a hand in the development of this project, I'm neither a tattooist, a photographer, nor a highly tattooed person. I'm simply an aficionado of wonder. This book is full of it -- awe. The images are awesome. Awesome art, awesome people. Check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tattoos Like You've Never Seen Them April 30 2014
By Glenys Morgan - Published on Amazon.com
Just when you think you've seen tattoos showcased in every way imaginable, along comes the Tattoo Project book to turn that perception on its head. Hemingson's concept of having a dozen different photographers all shoot the same group of tattooed subjects is original and inspired. No two photographers even came close to approaching this project in the same way. The diversity and scope of their imaginations makes for fascinating viewing and reading - and what I am sure will be many years of continued appreciation. The quality of the photographs is well-augmented by the size and heft of this tome. I highly recommend it for lovers of art, photography and enthusiasts of all things tattooed. Be forewarned, if you leave this book lying around where it can be picked up, you'll have difficulty prying it out of the readers hands. A sneak peak won't be enough, and they won't want to put it down!
