The essence of a folio as a medium is to allow direct physical contact with the photographs as hand-held objects, and to treat the photographic project as a whole.

A folio is a collection of 10 to 12 photographs for a given project, enriched by a text describing them (a title page, an introductory text, a list of photos, and a colophon that includes such details as the photographic technique used, the time of taking the photographs, the consecutive number of a particular folio, and its month and year of print). Every sheet with a photograph has a title. Everything is enclosed in a specially designed folder made of acid-free cardboard.

A folio is therefore something between a traditional portfolio, meaning a collection of loose photographs, and a book, since the photographs are arranged in a well thought-out sequence and further enriched with a text.
