We've all seen him haul his photo equipment around at a contest or two; Kay Clauberg. Ring-flash here, umbrella there, extra accu's for remote flash power, long lens, fish eye, you name it, it's in his backpack or on his stroller. Kay's photo book is a direct result of a University project.
Once the single copy was done it was time to find a publisher to print it. This turned out to be a tough case. Only with the help of the Carhartt people Kay could afford to have the book published and put it on the market for sale.
The book has 132 pages full of ultra sharp BMX freestyle pictures (total of 145). Kay has been around so the book is full of different spots and different riders. Each picture asks for a who, where, when but every image is explained at the back of the book. Several riders wrote a story for the book which are both printed in English and German. The book is pretty international so to say.
Books like these don't come around often. Not too many BMX photographers could pull off a job like this. Kay did, and it's definitely worth checking out. It's a keeper for life.
Available at a.o. Paul's Boutique BMX.
