Strategic Linkage: Binding and Sequence in Photobooks

Essay published in Aperture’s The Photobook Review, Spring 2012

From the introduction:

“The way images and texts bind together to form narratives is critical to a photographic sequence. I’m using the word binding in the conceptual sense, how images mentally link to one another or to a text. Photo sequence combines images in a specific order to create a context for meaning to be inferred between the images. There is a wide range of different sequence modes as well as variations on prototypical sequence styles. A mode I’ll single out here binds subject matter in photographs to create metaphors.”
