An interview with photo-book designer Teun van der Heijden

Teun started his career as graphic designer and it was his collaboration with the World Press Photo (for which he curates all graphic aspects, including the annual catalogue) that led him to develop an interest in photography, so much so as to want to study it, to fall in love with it and become the most in-demand name among photographers when it comes to design their books.Teun has profusely worked with some of the internationally most esteemed photographers and his books have won numerous awards including the POYi (Picture of the Year international).
