The PIX book series is a numbered collection that has been curated by photographer Pete Voelker and published under the Spotz imprint. The portfolio follows a unique approach, in which Voelker selects an image from a photographer to serve as a prompt for other photographers to submit their work in response. This process spans over a two-month period, during which Voelker receives entries from photography enthusiasts worldwide. Subsequently, the photographs are edited into sequences that integrate the work of young or amateur photographers with those of photographers who have established careers spanning decades.
