Using her iPhone, Penelope Umbrico took pictures of mountains from Aperture's "Master of Photography" photo books and processed them through photo applications to create images for "Moving Mountains (1850-2012)," a candy-colored mosaic of 87 images that will also be compiled into a photo book this year.

Vik Muniz used fragments of pages from Edward Weston's "The Daybooks, Vol. 1 Mexico" to create "The White Iris," a photographic collage based on Weston's portrait of fellow photographer Tina Modotti, from the series "Pictures of Paper," 2012. Courtesy Vik Muniz/Sikkema, Jenkins & Co.

Rinko Kawauchi chose Sally Mann's acclaimed Immediate Family series, in which Mann uses as subjects her children (a boy, a girl and a new baby), often shot when they're sick or hurt or naked. Like Mann, the Japanese photographer used her children as subjects. courtesy Rinko Kawauchi
Kawauchi's edition includes six 8-by-10-inch prints contained in a custom-made wooden box. The photos and the book are wrapped together in a custom-made Japanese cloth. courtesy Rinko Kawauchi
