Robert Adams: Books & Gravures

In this video, Robert Adams explains the importance of the relationship between pictures when juxtaposed, specifically in the context of books, and the benefit of pairing individually strong photographs together to create new meaning:

As all photographers know, one good picture next to another good picture and you have a third something. It may be better, it may be worse, but putting pictures next to each other inevitably influences the nature of both pictures. –Robert Adams
