for the love of Photobooks

I have been collecting photobooks for about forty years. I love the way they feel and the intimate viewing distance looking at one. The photographs presented in a book is so much different than when viewing one on a wall in a gallery or museum. How the photographs are sequenced provide a very different "narrative" than any one photograph by itself. This essay by Teju Cole, "In Praise of the Photobook" sums up many of the reasons why a photobook is unique.

I am now fascinated by obsolete objects. It is amazing to me how much stuff has gone obsolete in just the past few years. Ok, maybe it is more than a few years. Here are some samples:

World on View


Finally, I put a book of photographs out for the world to see. Title of the book: World on View. Now I wait for feedback from my friends and colleagues. I am still considering adding an introduction if someone steps forward with thoughts that can add to this oeuvre.
