FIRST STOP, LAST STOP: Rita Nannini + My Upcoming Nov LACP Online Workshop

First Stop, Last Stop  
Published by Workshop Arts, 2023
Photographs by Rita Nannini / Design by Caleb Cain Marcus

Rita Nannini traveled 22 subway lines and 600 miles of subway tracks to find what lies at the end of each line. She discovered the end of the line for one person is the beginning for another. First Stop Last Stop is an exploration of how the subway connects communities to each other and the edges of the city, with an essay by Virginia Hines and beautifully designed by Caleb Cain Marcus of Luminosity Lab. And you can purchase it here!
Since 2013, Rita Nannini has been photographing all the first and last stops of the NYC Subway! In 2021, Rita brought her enormous archive of subway photographs to my LACP Photo Book Design Workshop. It was a stand-out project she continued to work on...

"Elizabeth’s class was instrumental in helping me edit and sequence hundreds of photographs into my book First Stop Last Stop. From day one, she freely shared her wealth of experience and knowledge of photo book design to organize the images and decide on what should be included in the book. By the end of the class, I had a much clearer vision to work with book designer Caleb Cain Marcus of Luminosity Labs, who beautifully worked in the subway and train elements.” – Rita Nannini
Designer Caleb Cain Marcus of Luminosity Lab created the final terrific design for Rita Nannini's newly published book, 'First Stop Last Stop’ (Workshop Arts, 2023)! I love the NYC Subway metallic-like cover and the very graphic numbers for the different train lines. Congrats to Rita and Caleb!
