Touching Strangers to be published by the Aperture Foundation!

Dear Readers & Subscribers,

Support and Pre-Sales available today through August 5 on Kickstarter.  Aperture will also be printing a limited special edition of the book available for purchase only through the Kickstarter platform. The limited edition will truly be limited in the sense that once the Kickstarter campaign ends it will no longer be available.

This is one of the most important bodies of work that I have ever created, and I would love for this campaign to succeed. I would be extremely grateful if you could support this project at whatever level of funding you can comfortably manage, and to spread the word through any social media forums in which you participate.

My sincere gratitude,



Bryan Schutmaat

Congratulations to Bryan Schutmaat on winning the Aperture portfolio prize. Bryan is a former student of mine and he has been deservedly recognized for his beautiful project Grays the Mountains Sends. Needless to say I'm proud and really psyched for Bryan.
