Photobooks. Art Page by Page

The definition of the photobook is as broad as that of photography, and ranges from handmade unique objects to smaller and larger print runs, from self-publishing and zines to rare, elaborately designed and bound editions.

The book shows a selection of international photobooks from the last decades, with a focus on the photobook as an art object and a storytelling medium. The interaction between photography, material, binding, form, and format offers many possibilities for experimentation and demonstrates the potential of the photobook as an artistic medium unto itself.

With essays by Jörg Colberg, Silvia Gaetti and Calin Kruse.

The book was published in conjunction with the exhibition Photobooks. Art Page by Page, co-curated by Calin Kruse / dienacht Publishing for the GRASSI Museum of Applied Arts in Leipzig, Germany.
