David Campany guest edited this issue around questions such as: How do we select and sequence photographs in book form to create meaning? What does editing look like? Do we need a more formal discourse around editing and sequencing, taking into account László Moholy-Nagy’s statement that a sequence of images “can either be a potent weapon or a tender poetry”? Thematic content includes Sara Knelman’s historical consideration of novelist André Malraux’s curatorial project Museum without Walls; interviews with Roe Ethridge and Keith Smith, who discuss their individual approaches to editing and sequencing; and a series of analyses on a selection of photobook sequences from contributors such as Ryuichi Kaneko, Claudia Rankine, and Felipe Abreu. Taco Hidde Bakker profiles Roma Publications, and Hannes Wanderer is memorialized by Mary Frey and Giulia Zorzi. In the Reviews section, Nina Strand writes on Nina Berman, and Brendan Embser on August Sander; additionally, Oluremi C. Onabanjo considers the legacy of David Goldblatt’s photobook oeuvre, and Rebecca Bengal proposes a fresh look at the contemporary American landscape, focusing on books by Justine Kurland, Sam Contis, and Susan Lipper. Issue 015 also catalogues the shortlisted books for the Paris Photo–Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards for its seventh year.
