The book is for us an art piece. It is the final form for a photographic work and the actual artwork of a photographer. The printed paper, layout, typography, the sequence, it is a combination of different arts that makes the final piece of art. Why a photo book? to tell a story in pictures, or is it more to express ourselves in another language and not be always strictly narrative? The book-making is an ancient process, which is still the strongest for us when it comes to tell a story with documentary photography. So we are always thrilled about a good photobook.
At our publishing house, Kominek Books, the thematic focus is on documentary photography and geographically on Eastern Europe... but we are very open. Kominek Books has edited so far publications of photographers such as Alec Soth, Viviane Sassen, Enrique Metinides, Zoè Beausire, Greg Girard, Rinko Kawacuhi and Birthe Piontek.
