On Newsstands

Three recent exhibitions offer a rare look at the act of collecting. In Archipel, Serge Clément presents a collection of all the photobooks that he has made – books that can be seen as sequencings of collections of his own images.

Finally, the collection of Jack Lazare represents a rare example of a collection patiently assembled over the years to reflect a melancholic vision of a world in difficulty.
