We asked photographer and collector Bill Diodato to share the story of putting together his photobook and photograph collection. In this 11-minute video, he relates how he began collecting photographic literature, which artists were his greatest inspiration and how he came to own images by Sally Mann, Irving Penn and Bernd and Hilla Becher.
