JBE Books celebrates its 10th anniversary!


From its beginnings, with the entry of the book Kim Jong Il Looking at Things in the iconic The Photobook: A History Volume III by Martin Parr, JBE Books has explored photography in all its forms. Whether it is a matter of inscribing our practice of the Internet in time (The Nine Eyes of Google Street View by Jon Rafman), or of reformulating our relationship to the archive image (Vague Souvenir by François-Xavier Courrèges ), to unfold in artists’ books (My Photo Books and Touching by Lina Scheynius), or in specific commissions from photographers (Emilie Baltz for The Leaked Recipes Cookbook), 21st century photography is a central axis of the catalog built by JBE Books for more than 10 years.

On the occasion of the Rencontres d’Arles 2022, the publishing house will present a preview of its book Modern Alchemy, an exceptional encounter between photographer Viviane Sassen and philosopher Emanuele Coccia.
