PhotoBook Journal – Issue #13


Welcome to our 13th Issue;

We continue our quarantine mode during the days of COVID-19. This month we have another diverse selection of photobooks, ranging from Australia conceptual landscapes, the genre of the nude, one painted and the other investigating athleticism, as well as two narratives on the concept of dust, WWII reimagined, and a conceptual contemplation of our extinction.

Cheers & please stay healthy and safe,
Douglas Stockdale
Editor & Publisher
