Photobooks are the new calling card for photographers. More and more artists are choosing to showcase their work as bound collections, which are then seen as works of art in themselves. ‘Blindspot’, by photographer Robert McCormack, is a collection of fine art prints of the eponymous series, which captures the struggle of African migrants in Dublin. In book form the themes captured in the images are strengthened with text by Maeve Mulrennan of a fictitious interview with the photographs’ subject. The book is in a limited run of five and includes hand printed, full colour archival pigment prints on hand made paper. This unique photo book is available at SO Fine Art Editions for €2,500.
