Photography Call – TWIN PEAKS Book. Deadline: Nov. 25, 2016.


Spanish publisher Fuego Books is looking for international photographers to be included in its fourth book. e volume will be an anthology of new photographic works based in the Twin Peaks TV series and the universe of David Lynch and is titled A place both wonderful and strange .


The theme of the book will be photographic works inspired by the tv series Twin Peaks. Twin Peaks was an influential american TV series from the early 90s. It was created by David Lynch and Mark Frost, and its unprecedented combination of soap opera elements, crime serial and a heavy dose of surrealism made it a surprise hit whose influence has growing stronger each year since. In 2017 Twin Peaks will be back on TV with a new season, and our purpose is to honor and explore the strange world that has caused so many obsessions.


We are not looking for literal interpretations based on the famous iconography of the series. A simple remake of the iconic image of Laura wrapped in plastic or a wink to the room of red curtains are things that we have seen many times.


We want to see new visions, with a contemporary language, alluding to the themes and obsessions present in Lynch’s work. They can be mundane or ethereal, cryptic or direct, surreal or realistic. Or, as Twin Peaks itself, may be several of these things at once.


Photographers and visual artists using photography worldwide are invited to apply. The application must include the following information in a single PDF:

Who are you? A short biography, link to your website and a short CV will be enough.

What is your idea? Describe the concept or idea of your project or photographic series. A few lines of text would be ok. e work must have not been published before.

The pictures. Please include 10-15 pictures. They can be recent work or preliminary sketches. We need them to know the visual direction of the project.

Applications must be send to twinpeaksphotobook@gmail.com

The deadline for the application process is November 25. The selected authors will be contacted in early December.




La editorial española Fuego Books, especializada en fotolibros, invita a fotógrafos de todo el mundo a enviar propuestas para formar parte de su cuarto título, una antología que tendrá como tema Twin Peaks y el universo de David Lynch y se titulará A place both wonderful and strange.


El tema del libro serán trabajos fotográficos (de componente narrativo o seriados) que estén inspirados por la serie de tv Twin Peaks. Twin Peaks fue una influyente serie de televisión americana de comienzo de los años 90. Creada por David Lynch y Mark Frost, su combinación sin precedentes de elementos propios de la telenovela, de las series policiacas y unas fuertes dosis de surrealismo la convirtió en un éxito sorpresa al que los años han convertido en una serie de culto. En 2017 volverá a las pantallas de todo el mundo y nuestro propósito con este libro es homenajear y explorar ese mundo que tantas obsesiones ha provocado.


No buscamos interpretaciones literales basadas en la famosa iconografía de la serie. No buscamos un simple remake de la icónica imagen de Laura envuelta en plástico o un guiño a la habitación de cortinas rojas, son cosas que ya hemos visto muchas veces.


Queremos ver trabajos nuevos que, con un lenguaje contemporáneo, hagan referencia a los temas y obsesiones presentes en la obra de Lynch. Pueden ser mundanos o etéreos, crípticos o directos, surreales o realistas. O, como la misma serie de TV, pueden ser varias de esas cosas a la vez.


Necesitamos que nos envies, en un solo pdf, la siguiente información.

¿Quien eres? Una pequeña biografía, enlace a tu página web y un breve CV será suficiente.

¿Cual es tu idea? Describe cual es tu idea de proyecto o serie para participar en el libro. Necesitamos que sea un trabajo que no haya sido publicado o expuesto con anterioridad. Si no tienes claro este punto no dudes en consultarnos.

Las imágenes. Incluye también 10-15 imágenes de bocetos u obra reciente que nos de una idea sobre la dirección visual que tendrá tu trabajo.

Las solicitudes deben ser enviadas a twinpeaksphotobook@gmail.com

Y la fecha límite 25 de noviembre de 2016. Los autores seleccionados serán contactados a inicios de diciembre.
