Raymond Meeks' Favorite

I walk toward the sun which is always going down
Alan Huck

"Each wandering sojourn through I walk toward the sun… provides new revelations and discoveries. Quite simply, it’s the book I needed most and wish I’d made."





Jeffrey Ladd's Favorite

Berlin-Wedding, 1978
Michael Schmidt

"Before the arrival of his grand experiment Waffenruhe, Michael Schmidt was making books that, on their surface at least, appear to stay within the established lanes of photographic tradition."




George Slade's Favorite

There, There quarterly: Issue Two
Aspen Mays, Drew Nikonowicz, & John Mann

"My most exciting interaction with photobookworld, however, was in early October at the Silver Eye Book Fair, where I encountered a core sample of the dynamic scene of contemporary indie publishers and artist-driven books. The book that most intrigued me in Pittsburgh, however, is hardly a book at all..."




Rudi Thoemmes' Favorite

The Pillar
Stephen Gill

"On a visit to Narayana Press earlier this year, I was told about a photographer they recently had on press who was such a perfectionist that it took 12 days to print his book. Narayana wondered if I knew him since he also came from Bristol. Of course, I remembered Stephen, who gave a memorable talk at one of our photobook festivals and left a lasting impression."



Maki’s Favorite

In my mind there is never silence
Diego Moreno

"After his magnificent first book, Huesped, Diego Moreno came to this year's Arles photo festival with this new, astonishing, and limited photobook, which confirms the talent and depth of this Mexican photographer."




Jeff Mermelstein's Favorite

The Imperfect Atlas
Peter Funch

"A childlike excitement came over me in anticipation of the book, with some of the visual clues that the publisher displayed on the website. I started to think about my memory of the look of the 1970s color television screens. I contemplated the tragedy of global warming and how Funch communicates this profound issue in a way that utilizes an intelligence that is precise, inventive, playful, scientific, complex, surprising, telling and very much human."
