The definition of the photo book is as broad as that of photography, and ranges from handmade unique objects to smaller and larger print runs, from self-publishing and zines to rare, elaborately designed and bound editions. The exhibition shows a selection of German and international photo books from the last decades, with a focus on exceptional design and concept.
The interaction between photography, material, binding, form, and format offers many possibilities for experimentation and demonstrates the potential of the photo book as an artistic medium unto itself.
