Informed by and based on Matt Johnston’s extensive research and PhD thesis, Photobooks & presents and interrogates key themes of the contemporary photobook — from the medium’s post-digital and post-photographic situation, to the purposes of publishing, issues of accessibility and the act of reading.
Matt completed his PhD with bookRoom at UCA in 2019, about the post-millennium situation of the contemporary photobook and connections (made and missed) between makers and readers.
