Issue Details

As guest editor, Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa assembled “Notes for a History of the PhotoBook and the Archive,” an inquiry into how photobooks have been and can be useful framing devices for archival projects and the intersections of widely different types of photography. As he states in the introduction to that section, “it is through the considered articulation of the archival photobook that we are able to look again at our history of seeing the world.” Among the many contributors to this section are Susan Meiselas, Michael Lesy, David Campany, Thomas Sauvin, Renée Mussai, Mike Mandel, Brian Ulrich, and Andrew Stefan Weiner. For the Publisher Profile, Ruben Lundgren interviews Yuan Di of Jiazazhi Press; Antonio de Luca is featured in the Designer Spotlight. Additional review contributions include Justine Kurland on Mariken Wessels, Tim Carpenter on Michael Schmelling, Sarah Bay Gachot on Walid Raad, and Doug DuBois on Chris Killip.
