Dear Aspiring Photographers- forewards – VII

And please don’t ask me or any one else to write a Foreword to your book, Dear Photographer.

You have worked many years to get to this stage, do all you can to keep your own voice throughout the book. The notion of forewords was necessary a few decades ago, when Photo Books were a novelty or served as catalogues. Now the book is a form on its own and the photographer can be the Author!

For me the text in a photo book works only when it can be read independently as well, when it walks alongside your images and does not in anyway try to illustrate or even allude to them.
