PhotoBook Journal is an international magazine that focuses on contemporary photographic based books and publications, which provides commentary and reviews for contemporary projects, monographs, and small edition artist books. We discuss book design issues, provide interviews of photobook artists, publishers and designers, discuss book trends and occasionally provide photobook news.

The editorial staff is composed of artists and photographers who investigate contemporary issues, projects, and themes while appreciating the book object as well as being book collectors. We are active in photographic/photobook events, book signings and photo festivals as participants, book judges, curators and portfolio reviewers.

  1. Hi!

    My name is Petra Sith, and I am a freelance photographer from Northern Illinois. I left my job last year after many years in corporate America, to pursue my dreams in the field. After much loss, and hardship, one of my goals was to publish my own book within a year. I have a Kickstarter page to try to raise funds for this project. The link is below. The idea of the book is simple black and white photos of people holding signs, having written what they wanted to convey to the world at that time. I have been working on these photos with 200+ people from Milwaukee to Chicago. The book is called “One Man Rally: I Have Something to Say”. If you find this something you would like to back, I would very much appreciate a share of the link on your blog. I’m reaching out to different bloggers, and sites, to try to find assistance from other creative minds and sources. Thank you for your time!

    The Kickstarter link is:

    My photography website is: http://www.petrasith.com

    Thanks again!
