A photobook is not a gallery exhibition nor its catalogue. What works well on a wall won’t automatically look good between covers: It’s about disclosing more than showing. It is an object to crease, love and collect. it should be pleasant. It requires space to be stored and carried, time to be read. It also has its own time and space. Size, binding, paper thickness are affordances, they suggest ways to handle, hold and read. The content is presented through the layout of a sequence, regulating meaning but also rhythm and flow. Every photobook is a universe with its own rules and internal coherence. There’s no right or wrong, there are most and least effective ways for a content to be disclosed
