The digital photo album is the next step in digital art, and a new one is being developed by a group of photographers based in London, a company said Monday.
The “Crystal Ball” is a new digital art project, designed to give consumers a glimpse into the mind of a photographer and showcase his or her talent in a way they have never seen before.
The new digital album is a collection of photographs, mostly by British artist, Nick Cairns, that will be released in time for the 20th anniversary of the first Crystal Ball album, according to a press release from the British-based digital art company, BMG.
The album will be available for free download through the website “CrystalBall.com” as well as digital versions of the photographs, the release said.
The group behind the project is based in Britain and hopes to raise £5 million through the online sale of the digital albums.
The first collection of the “Crystal Balls” was released in May 2013, and will be a limited edition of 20 albums.
A second collection will be unveiled this month.
Cairns’ work is one of a growing number of digital art projects.
Last year, he released a digital book called “The Art of Photography,” that contains images from his digital portfolio.
The book is part of a larger project that is called “Digital Art for the Digital Age,” which will include work from around the world, including works by Pablo Picasso, David Hockney, Andy Warhol, Peter Brook, Peter Cotterell, Michael Kayser, Ken Loach and many more.
The digital art books also include photographs from a private collection, which is the basis for the “Magic Lanterns” album released in 2014.
The new digital artwork album will not be a commercial product, but will be offered as a free downloadable download on the site “Crystal” for the next year.
