2016 photobook jury team

As I announced here last month, I am part of the photobook jury team for Photobook Independent and the first photobook competition (me in the white shirt in the group photo above). More about the rest of the jury, here. The actual book judging occurred in LA yesterday.

I can’t announce any results at this time as the scoring and final evaluations are still in progress. I do appreciated that the team accepted my photobook judging recommendation to evaluate/score each photobook on the aspects of: Photography, Concept, Design and Publication.

The submissions were diverse, interesting and for me, a daunting challenge to evaluate and score. I am more accustomed to spending a least a couple of hours with just one book, least try to evaluate more than 70 in the span of an afternoon. It did not help the judging process that I occasionally would slow to really spend quality time with a captivating book  and as a result that to no one’s surprise that I was the last book judge remaining at the end of the event. Oh well.

Next, we are working on a schedule for me to provide a curatorial discussion of the winning book selections as well as the other books available during Photobook Indendent (in LA) at the end of this month. More about that event soon.

Cheers!
