Art Book Publisher Blaze Hill Press Announces Release of “From The Flea Market” Photography Book

Blaze Hill Press, an independent publisher of art and photography books, announces the release of "From The Flea Market," a collection of still lifes from Southern California flea markets by photographer Joe Guimera.

Manhattan Beach, CA, June 14, 2012 --( Blaze Hill Press, an independent publisher of art and photography books, has released "From The Flea Market," a collection of photographs by California photographer Joe Guimera. Taken over a period of two years at Southern California flea markets, Guimera’s still lifes are a new look at flea market finds.

The flea market is a place where objects of different eras, tastes, and prices, each with its own history, come together. A doll’s head with a red rose bow sits upon an antique silver platter and stares out with well-worn painted eyes. A black plaster dog squats on his haunches atop a picnic table as a cheerful clown sits by his paws, and political and movie posters loom in the background. Rusted tools from a bygone era lie perfectly arranged on a weather beaten table. Guimera’s clear, close-up photographs of oddly juxtaposed objects, unusual pieces, and poignant old favorites pair heartwarming memories with haunting images. His photographs offer a new take on the old saying “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.”

Joe Guimera is a Manhattan Beach, CA based photographer. His photographs have been exhibited in individual and group shows, published in magazines and websites, and included in private and corporate collections in the United States and Europe. More of his work can be seen at

From The Flea Market sells for $45.00 and can be purchased through the publisher at, local booksellers, and numerous online retailers. All images are available as signed, limited edition gallery prints.
