Interesting Photobooks for 2014

My interesting Photobooks of 2014

For those who follow my posts already know that I am a strong believer that anyone who has the endurance, determination and guts to publish their photobook deserves a strong pat on the back. You are all winners! The following photobooks have that little something extra, which may be exceeding hard to define or explain, but these photographers, usually in cahoots with a great (if not brilliant) book designer and backed by a diligent printer and bindary team, stand out.

Enjoy!

Laia Abril – The Epilogue, published by Dewi Lewis Publishing (Also selected for my list published in Emaho magazine)

Roger Ballen – Asylum Of The Birds, Thames & Hudson

Julia Borissova – Running to the Edge, Self-published (Also selected for my list published in Emaho magazine)

Jan Brykczynski – Boiko, self-published

Alejandro Cartagena – Carpoolers, self-published

Laura Curran – Lots of Cake!, self-published

Carolyn Drake – Wild Pigeon, self-published

Michelle Frankfurter – Destino, published by FotoEvidence

Robin Maddock – III, published by Trolley Books

Paula McCartney – A Field Guide to Snow and Ice, published by Silas Finch (Also selected for my list published in Emaho magazine)

Kate Nolan – Neither, self-published (Also selected for my list published in Emaho magazine)

Bryan Schutmaat & Ashlyn Davis – Islands of the Blest, published by Silas Finch

Matej Sitar – Morning Sun, self-published (his imprint)

Ed Templeton – Random & Pointless, Deadbeat Club Press (#19) (Also selected for my list published in Emaho magazine)

Hiroshi Watanabe – The Day the Dam Collapses, published by Daylight Books & Tosei-sha Publishing, Ltd, 2014 (as a note about potential conflicts, I was the Text Editor for Watanabe’s book)

This list of photobooks as I hope you noted are in alphabetical order by last name, so please do not read into whose name/photobook is first or last. Not all of these photobooks have been reviewed yet, but I should have the missing reviews published soon ;- )

Thanks to all of you for your on-going support this past year and I am eagerly looking forward to the creative endeavors or 2015.

Cheers!!

  5. […] This is a mysterious book of opposites, what is usually concealed in an album is revealed while those aspects that are usually visible, are concealed. The contour drawing of the opposing photographic collage functions as a mapping of memory. I am really intrigued with this book’s concept, design and materials of construction and named it as one of my More Interesting Photobooks for 2014. […]
