the purpose of making books has been a considered one. The initial idea was to use book making as a tool to teach myself how to edit and put together photographs into a meaningful collection, this is still an ongoing process and so far it has been helpful in helping me identify the good photos from the bad and be more critical of my work, separating the feeling of taking the photograph from the actual photograph as an artwork - also in contrast in helps feedback into my process of helping me fine tune what it is I'm looking for.

Street photography is very much a process of self discovery and analysis, finding more about yourself and what inspires you to keep going.

I've taught myself many new skills, including coptic stitching, perfect binding, over stitching and how not to glue my fingers together during the process.

New York Photo Book #1

Wednesday, 07 August 2019

This photo book contains my work from New York, in 2015.

This book represents a first attempt at single page binding, where the photograph is printed directly onto the page, rather than stuck on using glue.

The binding method is called perfect binding, you layer lots and lots of glue down the spine, pushing the spine in one direction, and then in the opposite direction to get a good spread of glue in the edge of the paper.

This is also the first attempt at an A3 sized photobook, with matt photo paper.
