Welcome to a presentation where we’re focusing on the form of the contemporary photo book!


The photo book has a central role in the artistry of Klara Källström and Thobias Fäldt. Through their publishing house B-B-B-Books, they have published 15 books, each carefully designed in relation to the content. In connection with their retrospective exhibition in the Hasselblad Center, the exhibition’s publication is bound together in place inside the exhibition hall.


The Hasselblad Foundation’s library contains approximately 17,000 photo books. With Källström and Fäldt’s book production as a point of departure, the Hasselblad Foundation’s library manager Andréas Hagström will show a selection of photo books and artist books from the collection. The presentation focuses on the diversity of expressions, idioms and designs that characterize today’s photo books. How does form interact with content in contemporary photo books? What can a photo book actually look like?
