Collected Photobooks
1988 to Present

I began collecting photobooks while on a student trip led by John Pickel to the Cranbook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan in 1989. My initial purchase was Sophie Calle’s “Sophie Calle. Suite vénitienne. Jean Baudrillard. Please Follow me.”, 1988, published in the USA by Bay Press. This curious and thoughtful conceptual experience was originally published under the same title by Éditions de L’Étoile-Cahiers du cinéma in Paris, France, in 1983.

Contained here is a selection of photobooks that I am fascinated with and continue to return to. I encourage you to seek out these artists and their profound work.

Additional photobooks will be posted here and in the blog beginning in late summer.
