As book editor, I work on monographs in close cooperation with the photographer in editing and sequencing the images for the bookpublication.
I am known to be honest, brutally honest according to some. But the honesty has a reason: it creates clarity. I am indeed honest, but also sincere and empathic. In close cooperation we can create an edit that tells your story. When the edit is on the table, I’ll include a brief to give to your designer, so that the book stays true to your ideas.
With more than a decade of hands-on experience in the photography industry, having worked with instiutions such as World Press Photo, Agence VU’, PrixPictet, Noorderlicht, and individual photographers such as Carlos Cazalis, Jeroen Toirkens, Munem Wasif, Pieter ten Hoopen, and many others, I understand what you want to say, and how to use your photographs to express that.
