The contemporary photobook is more than just a collection of images inside a book. It is an autonomous vessel that is constructed, through the use of innovative graphic design, complex image sequencing and text, to convey a visual narrative to the reader. The photobook has rapidly grown in popularity in recent years due to its inherent ability to solidify a photographic series and give to reader the opportunity to return to the project over and over again. While some photobooks celebrate an aesthetic simplicity in the sequencing of the images inside, others work as a catalyst to convey awareness of a certain topic or push for social change through a complex blend of text and imagery.
