“[A] very small number of books appeal to a broad number of people and simultaneously, in their original editions, to collectors. Paul Valéry once suggested that the history of literature should not be seen as a catalogue of authors and their works, but as, ‘a history of the Spirit as producer and consumer of literature,’ perhaps one day we might be able to say something similar of photography. Our urge to atomise and fetishise the medium is a result of times we live in, where everything must be seen to have a value.” Louis Porter • Photoworks
