TED Books is announcing today that they are releasing a companion ebook to Minescape entitled Minescape: Waging War Against Land Mines with a text by Joel Whitney, founder of Guernica: A Magazine of Art and Politics. The ebook pairs Van Ort’s moving photographs and personal accounts with Whitney’s globe-trotting investigative essays and multimedia features detailing the continued impact of land mines as well as innovative techniques for mine detection, allowing photography lovers and academics-alike to go beyond the images. This is the first TED book to be released in conjunction with a print edition. This initiative marks one of Daylight’s first projects that are part of the just launched Daylight Digital (www.daylightdigital.com).
