ABOUT ME and MY BOOK:
After such amazing and adventurous 5 years art journey I finally decided it's time to turn all my photos into unique thing - a beautiful art book. And I need your help to realise the photo book.
My name is Martin Stranka. I am a self-taught professional photographer. My distinctive vision of photography etched as a unique space located in a balance and serenity, while my sophisticated images exists in that narrow space of a few seconds between dreaming and awakening.
During the last 3 years I have gathered over 40 international awards from different competitions including Professional Photographer of the Year, Sony World Photography Awards or International Photo Award.

And this is me :-)
WHAT I NEED TO PUBLISH THE BOOK ?
My goal is to publish a limited edition book. To do this I need to raise at least 8,000 EUR. The more money I raise the nicer the book can be. Many details during printing and binding separate a good book from a great book and I want this to be a great book. I am setting a goal of 8,000 EUR because this is what I think I am capable of raising.
The major risk in this project is not getting funded. Indiegogo is all or none, so if the 8,000 EUR goal isn't reached, I won't get any of the funding toward the books. I will need to place a bulk order in order to keep the costs low.
I want you to love this book as much as I do.
HOW CAN YOU DONATE and GET YOUR OWN BOOK ?
You can donate with your typical credit cards (Visa and Mastercard) or with PayPal account. So it is so easy for everyone :-) The Perks you get for your contribution are on the right side (8 grey rectangles).
If the 8,000 EUR goal isn't reached, all accumulated money will be immediately sent back to your account. So you can't lose anything.
HOW THE BOOK WILL LOOK LIKE ?
I found an amazing book printer right here in Czech republic which published book for world known photographers, so I could not be luckier. They specialize in beautiful photography books, and I will be working with them one on one to create a high quality art book. It will be a hardcover gem that will really hold its own on bookshelves and coffee tables, and it will feature all of my favorite images from my last 5 years. All books will be numbered and personally signed as a limited edition. I plan to publish the book after this crowdfunding project.
Here is a book preview:
WHAT WILL YOU GET FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION ?
While the book itself will be the main goal and the reward for the € 29 and higher levels, I am also offering a Collectors Box, small prints and beautiful museum archival grand prints up to 100x100cm from my portfolio, personally signed and numbered (edition of 25). Read more about each of these rewards to the right. If the 8,000 EUR goal is reached all rewards (all prints and collector's box) will be immediately sent at the end. All books will be sent immediately after publishing the book (during the second/third quarter of the year 2013).
