By presenting a diverse geographic and ethnic selection, this anthology interprets the concept of the photobook in the broadest sense possible. From classic bound books and portfolios to unpublished works, zines, and scrapbooks, it documents well-known publications, such as Germaine Krull’s Métal (1928) and Diane Arbus: An Aperture Monograph (1972), and relatively unknown items, like Eslanda Cardozo Goode Robeson’s African Journey (1945) and Eiko Yamazawa’s Far and Near (1962). Moreover, it addresses glaring gaps and omissions, especially the lack of access, support, and funding for photobooks by non-Western women and women of colour.
