Photographer Plans Genesis ‘Museum’ Digital Book
Photographer Armando Gallo has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a digital book which he hopes will become a “Genesis museum.”
It’s to be based on his acclaimed 1980 title I Know What I Like and will be launched as an iPad app, featuring photos and interviews covering the band during the 1970s, featuring Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford and Steve Hackett.
Hackett will contribute sounds and music to the book, of which he says: “I truly feel Genesis deserve this – it’s going to be quite a ride.”
Gallo says: “I Know what I Like is my labour of love. I wrote the book so it could truly be from one fan to all others. The original book had the obvious limitations of paper: number of pages, how many pages could be in colour, size of photographs and more.
I envision this version to overcome all those constraints, so I will be able to include never-before published material plus music, sounds and animations.”
He aims to raise $20,000 to cover production of I Know What I Like, with pledge offers starting at just $1. The campaign closes on May 19, and if the target amount is not reached no money will be taken from any supporter.
