"Thirteen international photographers were invited to choose a photo book that was influential in forming their work, and to pay it artistic homage. All the participating works show a wide spectrum of enthusiasm for photo books and the variety of inspiration sources drawn on by international photo artists. Limited to three copies, each work contains the original photo book and its complementary homage. In sum Marks of Honour 08 constitutes a singular library and a system of reference on the most enduring influences as well as the freshest in contemporary photography.
To make it accessible to a broad public, Marks of Honour 08 will be shown in various international galleries and museums. The exhibition is a medley of the library itself, multimedia-reproductions of the work and large format ‘inspiration sketches’."
