"The text volume 'Photobooks &' by British researcher Matt Johnston presents and interrogates key themes of the contemporary photo book — from the medium’s post-digital and post-photographic situation, to the purposes of publishing, issues of accessibility and the act of reading.
Informed by extensive research, interviews with key individuals from the photo book ecology and his experience with 'The Photobook Club' project, Matt Johnston examines current trends and practices, emphasizing connections (made and missed) between makers and readers. Ultimately, this book proposes a critical framework for considering our uses and encounters with the photo book, calling for a recalibration of a maker-centric discourse to address the communicative potential of the medium: aligning making, with making public."
