Dust Collective was started by Emily Sheffer in 2017. Emily is a fine art photographer and book artist based in Hudson, NY and Cambridge, MA.
Dust Collective makes, promotes, and sells handmade, small-edition photography books. The books are unique, highly well-crafted, and explore concepts of time, weather, nature, and history of photography.
The books are promoted and sold at book fairs around the New England area, each fair allowing for a different public audience to interact with and purchase the objects. Through the collective, the books reach a wide audience, and provide artists with proceeds from sales of their work.
