Dobosz

The 480-page hardcover publication, 165 x 225 x 40 mm has a status of a collectible object due to the circulation of only 500 copies with numerical stamp assigned to each copy. Moreover, the art book remains the effect of close cooperation between Dobosz and Bienert, an undertaking which shows a deeply conscious approach to the status of photographic reproduction. Diverse typographic layout, its correspondence with a text, varied size of reproductions and juxtaposition of differing kinds of paper enrich the interpretation of Dobosz?s reportages. The authors make the reader aware of the fact that a photographic reportage can be viewed in a variety of ways: in the context of a whole cycle, as individual photographs, their fragments, with differences related to the presence or absence of a text accompanying the images. Furthermore, they point to the misleading neutrality of reproduction, shaped by the size, context, revealing the grain and materiality of a photograph or preservation of its apparent transparency.
