Zaid Salman, an artist and photographer, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to create a hardcover book of his art: SurrealScapes - Body Art and Creative Photography.
"I've been doing this art for years and now I want to bring it out to a wide audience, but I want to do that in a way that's accessible to everyone. Fine artists and photographers usually sell individual prints of their work, but to collect a large body of work, one would need to purchase a lot of individual pieces. The book format makes a large cross-section of my work readily available at a reasonable price," says Salman.
Salman sees platforms like Kickstarter as driving significant changes in the way art is made and creative expression realized.
