Working photographically, thinking textually
The Melbourne Photobook Collective is a group of artists who share an interest in making, reading, and talking about photobooks.
Each member of the Melbourne Photobook Collective takes a different approach to thinking textually as we make photographs, design books and prepare to share our work. In this panel discussion, we describe our practices with examples connected to research, captioning, poetry, essay writing and collaborative practices. We also discuss our varied reasons for thinking textually, the choices we make, the processes we engage in and the impact of making textual and visual connections both for ourselves and the readers of our work.
