kottke.org posts about Nicholas Felton
Nicholas Felton is out with a new book on information visualization and photography called Photoviz.
The stories told with graphics and infographics are now being visualized through photography. Fotoviz shows how these powerful images are depicting correlations, making the invisible visible, and revealing more detail than classic photojournalism.
Ahhhhh, this looks amazing. And is right up my alley as well...I quickly looked through some of the images featured in the book and I've posted many of them here before (see time merge media for instance). Can't wait for this one to arrive.
The 2013 Personal Annual Report for Nicholas Felton is available for pre-order and online perusal. Pre-ordered...I own a copy of every one except for the first year.
ps. The NY Times did a video about Felton and his annual reports.
Aside from 2005's installment, I have a copy of every Feltron Annual Report ever produced and I am eagerly awaiting the 2012 version.
Order yours here.
Nicholas Felton just released his most recent personal annual report: The 2010/2011 Feltron Biennial Report.
Ordered. I believe I have the entire set (aside from the exceedingly rare 2005 edition).
Nicholas Felton has been doing personal annual reports since 2005. But for 2010, he did a report of his late father's life utilizing various documents (birth certificates, notebooks, slides, etc.).
This is a marvelous document. Here's a photo of some of the source materials.
You know it, you love it, the Feltron Annual Report for 2009. This year, he asked people who knew him to report data.
Update: Here's a nice interview with Felton about the report.
