Can Photography Bookstores Survive? – A Conversation with Tim Whelan

Posted by on Oct 2, 2010 in Corey Presha | One Comment

– Great interview over on the New York Times Lens blog with Tim Whelan about the closing of his bookstore in Rockport, Maine. The store is considered to be one of the best in the world and its a shame that he has to close his doors but Tim seems quite optimistic about the situation. I wish I got a chance to see it before it closed. It’s a great read, take a look here.

    Enjoyed your interview…a range of emotions must be attached to life and your mission. I love to read and seems like a part of me is going away with the local, homespun bookstores and the memories that it creates by just entering in.
    While I was aware of the trend in bookstores, you put it into perspective with the numbers that have dwindled.
    The big (Amazon) are getting bigger, and mass drives cost. You seem to have a great attitude about this, and it will be a new season in life. Embrace it, and press on, and write a new chapter.
    All the best.
