Since 2008, Rémi Coignet has pursued engagements with those artists that inspire him, and for whom the photobook is an essential form in their work. In this book, a selection of more than 20 photographers, publishers and curators reread their respective work, and reveal their intentions in the process. It is Coignet’s hope that from these interviews a geography of contemporary photography will emerge. With photobooks and the series that artists tend to conceive as a foundation to conversation, he approaches Irène Attinger, Lewis Baltz, JH Engström, Ethan Levitas, Daido Moriyama, Lesley A. Martin, Anders Petersen, Paul Graham, Raphaël Dallaporta and many others.
