Photography competes with many art forms, but when it uses the book as a way to manage the viewers experience it stands out. A photo book becomes much more than the the sum of its parts. Every page provides new opportunities to morph the viewers experience. Like music, it can go in-crescendo, have overtures, moments of silence and more. As the pages flow the contents of the book create their own theater for the imagination. Holding a book, especially a hand made book makes the viewer feel like they are front row.
