Tine Guns & Daria Tuminas
Belgian Platform For Photobooks invited the artist Tine Guns and the curator Daria Tuminas to reflect on a subject they share a mutual interest in — photobook editing. What they have created takes the form of a downloadable double-sided poster. On one side is the central image of Guns’ self-published photobook Rocambolesco (2019), and on the reverse side is a detailed analysis of the publication’s editorial principles, accompanying the reader through all the image combinations, cover to cover. The layout emphasizes the non-hierarchical and non-linear way this text was collaboratively written: instead of an interview or a narrative, the reader will see the authors’ “voice balloons” floating around the visual scheme that served as the basis for the dialogue. Cut to a Photobook > experiments with applying film and comic book editing terms to the discourse of photobook editing.
