But where are all the people
the book
My 2010 photobook 'But where are all the people' has been selected as an Honorable Mention in the Photography Book Now International Juried Competition. The competition was judged by:

Darius Himes (Radius Books), Monica Allende (Photo Editor, London Sunday Times), Judith Puckett-Rinella (T: The New York Times Style Magazine), Martin Parr (Photographer), Lesley A. Martin (Aperture Foundation), David Fahey (Fahey/Klein Gallery), Michael Mack (Steidl/Mack Publishing), Susan Meiselas (Photographer) and Brian Smith (Photographer).

The book has 128/144 pages (softcover/hardcover). I am still seeking a publisher for it, but meanwhile a preview can be had and the book can be purchased online at www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1233513
New work and updates can be found on my website marcusbastel.com

All images are available as limited edition prints.
