This is the third in our Verticals | Writings on Photography series which explores key aspects of both contemporary and historic photography. With 480 pages and more than 100 colour illustrations The Photograph and The Album: Histories, Practices, Futures is a perceptive and stimulating guide to understanding that most pervasive photographic format, the photo album. Becoming "increasingly unruly", it has survived for over 150 years, from the first experimental albums of the 1850s to today's interactive, mobile applications.
