Photographic publishing: Michael Itkoff of Daylight Books & Auckland Photo Day

From Standing Room Only, 1:12 pm on 24 June 2018

Photographers are no longer just thinking about presenting their work blown up on the wall in exhibitions - or in the pages of magazines. The digital and web age has brought new forms of online publishing, and conversely it's also seen - like the revival of the vinyl record - a rise in interest in the physical photo book. A leading independent photography publisher is Daylight Books, co-founded in the United States by Michael Itkoff, a rather fine photographer himself. Daylight have done everything from handing our throwaway cameras to citizens in Iraq in 2004 to publishing a collection of iphone photographs after Hurricane Sandy. Mark Amery caught up with Michael while he was in Auckland for the Auckland Festival of Photography, judging this week's Nikon Auckland Photo Day competition.The Photo Day winners and finalists work can be seen here.
