Back home, and more books…
Today is World PhotoBook Day, 14 of october , anniversary of the first known photo book, Anna Atkins’s Photographs of British Algae. A day to celebrate!
Which book to choose for today? There are so many…We all have a favorite one, a secret love we may not wish to share, or on the contrary, want to show to everybody, so proud to have…
And maybe this book is just the one we don’t have, but long for, unreachable.
A book of love, or lack of it. Intimate or universal, black and white or with shiny colors, delicate or violent. About war or time for peace. About protest, or the weather forecast, about the clouds and the stars. A burning one. About longing, about loss mainly, surely…
So…which one is my favorite book? Good question, and no easy answer…
These are just for today. Too many.
Not a best of the year list, and maybe i’m a little bit too sentimental…
Please, tell me which ones are yours ! Let us share, and happy PhotoBookDay for everybody !!!
