John Wood believes

John Wood is an American award-winning poet, art critic and photographic historian.

He had a few words to say about the new photo book "Sequences: the ultimate selection":

Thank you so very, very much for your astounding and beautiful Sequences.
What an amazing production in absolutely every way!
Every aspect of the design and layout is wonderful.
Of course!
I am beginning to understand that the word "Voetnoot", the name of the publisher, means "amazingly beautiful books"!
I did not know Michel Szulc Krzyzanowski's work but am excited to learn about it.
He has a deeply poetic eye.
The last one I find particularly moving.
It reminds me of something in Jain art but in reverse.
Instead of the empty silhouette of the liberated Tirthankara, it is as if the figure has returned to the body and the sensual world.
A wonderful book in every way, and I appreciate it so very much.
