"The 2nd volume of the real must-have in the field of specialist photo book literature. 'Conversations 2' by Rémi Coignet contains a set of nearly 15 new talks between Rémi Coignet and major players in contemporary photography to investigate the role of the photo book in the work of his internationally known interlocutors - including photographers, designers and publishers - and how their photo books are designed. Published in a total of three volumes so far, the 'Conversations' by Rémi Coignet are wonderful teaching material to delve deeper into the subject of the 'photo book'. 'Conversations' will still be one in ten years are important for the understanding of photo books, as Coignet starts directly at the source of the information. Both the English and French-language editions are legible and easy to understand.
The wide range of mainly documentary, but also artistically working photographers is remarkable, including award winners such as Martin PARR and Joan FONTCUBERTA and photographers awarded with photo book prizes." (© Richard G. SPORLEDER)
