    Arranging project with 11x14 prints and writings

    Hi Guys-
    I am working on a school assignment that encompasses 10 photographs of environmental issues/solutions/changes. Along with each of these I have to write about a page of information about each photograph. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on how I can arrange these. I want to keep the photographs safe but also do not want to bound them permanently or anything like that. I had looked into getting a simple PrintFile wire bound 11x14 album and placing the wiring withing the page next to the photograph. Any other creative recommendations?

    Thanks,

    Patrick

    How about doing a 10-photo mobile, hanging 4x6 prints instead? Mount them on foamcore board and write on the back, or perhaps do the entire essay on styrofoam, leaving all the backs blank, as the project itself demonstrates the duality of the material - incredibly useful for the very reason its environmentally nasty - it lasts forever.

    That's a really great suggestion. I like that idea a lot. Unfortunately, I have made all of my prints already in 11x14 and on fiber base at that. So, I'd like to try to use these.

    you can get what is called a "press book" its a bound portfolio that you can slide your images
    AND your text into. there are pages with dividers, so you can slide the images in, have the next to it.
    the dividers are black paper, so you can mount ( double stick tape ) your text in the middle of each black page.

    you might also consider going to your neighborhood kinkos copy shop and having them do a little magic for you.
    arrange the images so it IS a book. you will have to format it before you go so the images flow and the correct
    text is next to the correct image ...
    have the kinkos people scan them onto large sheets, enlarge the text pages by x% so everything is 11x14,
    then they will fold and bind the presentation with a saddle stitch or hard binding.
    you can submit the prints separately if you feel the copies don't do justice to the image quality
    ( be warned though, color copies can make b/w look very nice ).

    if you don't want to deal with copies, formatting &c ... the press books can be found at amazon for not too much $$$
    just search "11x14 pressbook" and you will find them.

    have fun !

    I have a set of standard size mat board and a board behind it with photo corners. Put photograph in and the whole thing goes into a plastic sleeve/bag. There's ample place space on the back to slide a sheet with write up on it.

    Really easy to view photographs because they are separate. They are also protected. If you don't have t have it in a bound, book format, this may be an option.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?
