It's not analogue, alas, but was pleased to see one of mine in color on the cover (the executive portrait below the fold) of this New York Polish-language weekly, and another in B&W inside--

Unfortunately they don't include photo credits in general, so next time I may just put that in myself at the edge of the frame and see if they take the trouble to crop/clone it out.
I've been publishing other work lately in advertising, our semi-annual program, website, e-news announcements, press and such that I do in connection with my position at the Polish Cultural Institute in New York.
HESA Inprint, Issue 9, Oct. 2011. It is a Swedish/American magazine of fine art and creative writing.
I've just published an ebook with my texts and stories on photography, 13th Frame:
Available both on Amazon and Smashwords, soon for iPad and Nook (you can also read it in PDF on your computer);
The content: some not-so-serious stories and essays on photography, lot's of images and stuff.
I finally got published September in the local Brevard Live! magazine, which covers the local live music scene. I had the cover shot and the main feature. Though digital, it feels great to have my work out there. Lots of compliments, apparently I was good enough to be hired a second time for the cover shot for this month. I'll scan them when I get a chance.

In 2009 I was commissioned to take a series of photographs of a financial investor who was putting out a book. We drove to various points in his hometown of Detroit for the images. The other day I finally got a look at the book, "Good Returns - Making Money by Morally Responsible Investing", which came out in 2010, by purchasing a copy through Amazon. My photos are in there but with no credits. Another writer, who happens to be a good friend of mine and principally put the book together, is normally pretty good with credits for photographers. Oh well. At least I was paid for my work. -Marc

I just wrote an article for a new Swedish magazine - Inzpira. Previously I've contributed artwork to earlier editions. It's fun to collect thoughts in articles, I think.

I finally have my book published this month. It's a Blurb book I've been working on all year. It's a 10x8 hardcover with a dust jacket. 80 pages of my b&w photographs with poetry by eleven poets plus a few that I contributed.
It covers the 15 years I free-lanced in Detroit for a few labor unions - The UAW, United Steel Workers of America and others. The book, "This Working Life", primarily depicts industrial laborers on the job. Other shots included are of working class people off the job and some industrial sites. Most of the poems were not created for specific photos but were paired via literary and visual connections. A hand full were written for specific photos. Anyone familiar with poets who write about labor and working class issues will recognize a few of them; Jim Daniels, Philip Levine, Hank Malone and Larry Smith. I was very fortunate to gain permission to include their work.
Here's the link to preview the book in it's entirety; http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/2731932

Congratulations, Russ. I really like your work and the book is something I'll add to my Christmas list. If I'm too late for that, I'll buy a copy myself in January. In the 80s & first half of the 90s I sold industrial equipment in the Detroit, Flint & general southeast area of Michigan. I had access to all kinds of plants & factories (The Rouge, BASF plants, Mobil, Standard Oil, GM Truck & Bus, Chrysler, Zug Island and dozens of smaller fabricating and manufacturing plants), but, I wasn't shooting a whole lot back then and when I did shoot my subject interests had more of a nature/wildlife propensity to it. Your book really captures the atmosphere of the time and places. Again, congrats!

But you were credited for your beautiful work in Bertie Bonell's Domino's Farms coffee table book.
