Challenge Accepted: 1 Facebook Post. 7 Days. 900 Photos. And Counting is a work of non-fiction in the photography subgenre that was created by Chris Maltby. As the title suggests, this unique work was inspired by a simple everyday post on Facebook. The author was inspired to use his creative eye to capture everyday life through the lens of a smartphone. Those efforts resulted in this book, which chronicles the day-to-day events of Chris’s life and seemingly dull visuals, bringing them to life through stunning black and white artistry. The photos are accompanied by witty commentary and musings to contextualize them.
If you’re seeking an abstract coffee table photography book that will bring about plenty of interesting conversation, then look no further than Challenge Accepted by Chris Maltby. I personally enjoyed the connection that Maltby made between his own ideas and thoughts and the images he’s captured, which make you look at them from multiple perspectives and begin to understand his viewpoint as an artist. The book is also gorgeously well presented and engrossing. You just don’t want to stop flipping pages. I also feel that this work would be very useful in inspiring young artists to develop their critical eye and show them that photographic art can be found and created everywhere they look. Overall, I would highly recommend Challenge Accepted to photography enthusiasts the world over who are looking to expand their style even if they don’t have anything more than a smartphone to use to start their artistic journey.
