About

The Photobook Club aims to promote and enable discussion surrounding the photo book format. In particular looking at old, rare and influential photography books from the 20th century onwards.

We also run and support physical events around the photobook, more about that here.

The Photobook Club is run by Matt Johnston, you can follow us on Twitter and use the hashtag #photobc to get involved in discussion.

    Hi Matt
    I am a third year at Nottingham Trent university studying fashion communication and promotion. I am currently working on a self devised project surrounding the future of the digital image. Currently, I have been looking into the future of sines/photo books and have found your website really inspiring! I was wondering if there was anyway that I could contact you with some questions…I’d love to pick your brain surrounding some of the topics I’ve been looking into.
    Hope to hear back from you!
    Thanks, Hollie
