    "Book Review" Richard Johnson Photo Book Review “Portraits of Youth Culture” by James Ide The author for this book is James Ide he has photographed, edited and published his own work, looking at the book it became apparent that his has adopted a clear structure throughout most of the book apart from the first and last page and the two text pages. His clear structure consists of all the photographs being in a portrait format each having a thin black border separating it from the plain white background. The large amount of empty space around each of the photographs works by drawing one’s attention fully to the photograph exaggerated more by the absence of text. There are twenty-one pages that follow this convention. On opening the book there is a large elongate photo, a replica of the front cover. Following this there is the introduction, the first of only two text pages in the book. The introduction is straight to the point and works very well at raising one’s awareness of... More > what the book is going to show. The photographs that follow are shown in the same way as above, however the subject matter always changes within the photographs. None of the photographs follow the same convention, as they are all shot in a different way and most likely at different times. However photographs sixteen and seventeen are very similar as the subjects faces are covered by objects. The page that follows is a text page containing the colophon, this contains all the information about copyright, publishing and the author. The author has left on that page his contact information so one could contact him about the book. Also on this page a special thanks section has been added to acknowledge the subjects in the photographs. The following page contains the only full-bleed photograph in the book it is in grey scale and is a very striking image, a very good choice to end the book on. This book however does not follow the convention that the colophon should be at the back of the book or on the first page because he has chosen to put in on the penultimate page. After viewing the book fully it becomes apparent that the flow of the book has been well thought out making it easy to understand the concepts the author is trying to get across. However the theme is then varied to show different types of subject, for example photographs sixteen and seventeen. The photo book has a simple linear narrative, the subjects seem to be very comfortable around the photographer which gives the impression that maybe all the subject are friends and the photographer is portraying one group of people from an area. This book is overall very good, it has a well thought out structure and I highly recommend it.< Less
