"For many decades the book has been the most influential way of arranging (and usually miniaturizing) photographs, thereby guaranteeing them longevity, if not immortality."
Susan Sontag - On Photography, First Published 1977
Although this statement was written prior to the recent revolutionary changes in the creation and viewing of photographs, the book is, remarkably, still the best way to experience narrative photography.
My projects often involve supplementary text such as prefaces, essays, titling and chapter divisions. The selection and editing of photographs for use either as striking single images or as a narrative is of paramount importance.
