Lens Culture 2008 Ruhbarb Photo Book Award

Posted on: 30 July 2008

Digital publishing-on-demand services are completely changing the way photography books can be envisioned, created, distributed and sold.

New online services for self-publishing photo books have finally attained the level of quality printing that rivals traditional book publishing — and they are turning the economics of publishing on its head.

The new books look great, they’re amazingly affordable, and the technology makes it easy for photographers to get creative and experiment with different sequences, designs, and formats.

In short, we are beginning to see some remarkable photo books that never would have seen the light of day five years ago, simply because it was neither technically nor economically feasible to create them until now.

To celebrate this newfound freedom, Lens Culture ( has teamed up with the Rhubarb-Rhubarb Photography Review in Birmingham, UK, and to create an all-new international photo book award. All photographers who have registered to present their portfolios at this year’s event (August 1, 2, and 3) will be eligible to win the prize, which will include publishing their own monograph, and getting international publicity and promotion to help sell the book.
