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.

Photo Book Experiment #1

Wednesday, 07 August 2019

This book's pages are of hand paper, fairly thick stock paper, the photographs have then been stuck on using spray glue.

The colourful borders of the photos were cut from lino first, and then pushed onto the paper to create a print.

The stitching to hold the pages together is a fairly basic coptic stitch, using a fairly thick red thread.
