The Form of the PhotoBook (Video)

Lesley A. Martin discusses selections from the PhotoBook Awards submission pool, and the details that compel a juror to take a closer look.

More than six hundred photobook submissions have filled Aperture Foundation’s shelves over the past twenty-one weeks, and we expect yet more to arrive as we approach the final days of the Paris Photo—Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards call for entries.

On this occasion, Lesley A. Martin, publisher of Aperture’s books, sat down to discuss selections from the submission pool, the details that compel a juror to spend time with a book, and thoughts on the form of the photobook in relation to the images within.
