Organize your material in a simple format like Microsoft Word or on a PDF file. This exercise is not meant to be perfect, but instead give you an idea of what your book will look like when it is finished.
-Your image sequence is important. Engaging or even shocking photographs at the beginning of the book will hold readers attention.
-Avoid repeat content when captioning or titling your photographs:
For documentary based projects, captions should tell the reader a more detailed description instead of repeating what is already included in your written presentation of the story.
For artistic projects, use titles to lure the reader into your message. A metaphor to stimulate the mind is a good tool.
If your book has chapters, be descriptive as you introduce the reader of what is coming next.

Edge of Humanity Magazine Curator Services
Although photography alone can tell a good part of the story, there are other factors that artists often overlook.
During their search for the best light or the truth, photographers sweat in the heat and shrivel in the cold. They smell the stench and enjoy the aroma of flowers. They are welcomed and frowned upon. The experiences of being there and the desire to tell the story carried on by pride for their labor of love and expectations that when finalized, the work will be fair to the subject and make a difference, can be overwhelming.
A fresh eye is necessary to organize the delivery of that material, in a fashion that is easy to follow, and yet has impact, by holding the spectators’ attention to the message one wishes to convey. This is when a curator comes into place. Unattached, the curator selects images aiming to promote engagement and consequently readers’ awareness.
