Having recently shared some of my books on the 10x10 Instagram feed, (http://instagram.com/10x10photobooks) it has made me think more about books that I revisit. I don't watch many film twice, nor do I read many books a second time, but photography books do get repeat viewings. I think in the same way that visiting the same exhibit at a museum a second time can elicit a different impression, photography books can do the same.
Here are a few from a book that I bought a few years ago. I hadn't read anything online about it, but saw it a shop and liked it. That experience now strikes me as unique. It doesn't happen much these days and is probably proof that I need to spend less time in the online world of book blogs, reviews, and lists. I look at this book again and again. Not just to learn from (edit, sequencing, design composition etc etc etc). But to enjoy. I sit with it and am surprised by different elements each time. Do seek out a copy if you can.
The book is "Two Thousand Light Years from Home" by Pietro Mattioli published by Kodoji Press
