At the same time as being part of the Actes Sud senior management team, Jean-Paul Capitani heads up the Beaux-Livres (coffee table books) department, which includes photography books and covers areas from architecture to nature with, for each area, an editor in charge of the catalogue and program. I am in charge of the photography department and it is split into two sections: publication of the Photo Poche (pocket photo books) collection, managed by its founder Robert Delpire, with whom I have worked closely since 1983, and the publication of albums or monographs which are more specifically rooted in the authorial creativity of photographers. Roles and titles are shared according to our various enthusiasms, areas of interest and affinities.
