Description

What is the status and potential of the photo-book? Not only does the photo-book facilitate other means of display and distribution than gallery exhibitions, the book format also allows for challenges of photography’s instantaneousness, illusions of movement, and investigations of the photographic language. The photo-book has furthermore been seminal in the distribution of avant-garde conceptual photography, as well as social documentary and political statements. Is the photo-book today mainly a mainstream medium, a collector’s item, or a platform for artistic experiments? This collection of essays addresses current phenomenological, technological, and practical possibilities for communicating through photo-books and other visual narratives.
