About 5B4 Photography and Books

Each month, you'll receive access to articles by Jeffrey Ladd on fascinating photobooks drawn from several categories:

  • Artist books
  • Documentary photobooks 
  • Unintentional photobooks 
  • Industrial photobooks 
  • Company photobooks
  • Advertising booklets
  • Oddities and Ephemera

Over the past 30 years, photobooks have informed my practice as an artist and evolved my thoughts on the medium, especially regarding the increasingly complicated question; How would I define a photobook?

By subscribing you will be supporting my work - but importantly for you - you'll see into fascinating books that might challenge the way you think about photography and bookmaking. Pick a subscription level and follow me down the rabbit hole.
