This year we are celebrating the 25th anniversary of our renowned listing of the year's best photobooks. To mark this milestone, we've decided to do something a bit different. We've asked 90 internationally recognized luminaries from the photobook world to choose their favorite photobook of the year. Their favorite book could be unforgettable for any number of reasons but the chosen books affected our selectors on a very personal level. These books led each of our contributors to conclude, "If there's one book not to miss this year, it would be this!"

Colin Pantall's Favorite

Landfall
Photographs by Mimi Plumb

“This book is the story of Sohrab Hura’s mother, her mental illness and her struggle to keep her house in order. Most of all though, it’s the story of her dog, Elsa, and their companionship. It’s a beautiful story, and a terribly sad one—Elsa dies in the end—played out against the backdrop of Ma’s messy house. And Hura’s photography, and its incidental intimacy, is part of that backdrop. It made me cry. I loved it.”
