The Heavy Collective is excited to announce the first official launch of Heavy: Volume One at Family Books in LA Thursday next. Helping us launch the book will be title-featured artist Stacy Kranitz, signing copies on the night. The publication includes work from Kranitz’s series From the Study of Post-Pubescent Manhood, an exploration of pain as catharsis in a frontier of madness.

Heavy: Volume One draws together a diverse group of past contributors from our online platform, making a tangible connection between artist and paper. Featuring – words and work from Bryan Schutmaat, Mark Steinmetz, Lucas Foglia, Stacy Kranitz, Tim Page, Kate Peters, Zhang Xiao, Sara Cwynar, Simon Davidson, Emmanuel Angelicas and Daniel Boetker Smith. Volume One is a significant showcase of contemporary photography, a compendium of the relationships and archive The Heavy Collective have cultivated with some of the most important photographers working today.
