From a press release:

“Did you capture a great picture from the day of the total solar eclipse? Now’s your chance to have it published in an upcoming documentary photo book, Chasing the Great American Eclipse.

The Washington, D.C.-based publishers of the coffee table book have an open call for photographers from across the country to contribute images that will document the eclipse of Aug. 21, the first time in 100 years that the path of a total eclipse traveled from coast to coast in the U.S.

Chasing the Great American Eclipse will document what happened in the sky and on the street during the eclipse. The book editors say they are looking for photos that capture the spectrum of emotions, the crowds, the traffic jams, the street corner preachers, the revelers and the moments that will remind us what it was like the day the sun disappeared over America.

Photographers can submit to the open call at Focus on the Story. The project is also on Kickstarter, where backers can be the first in line to get a copy of the hardcover, photo book. (more…)
