Jason Eskenazi's Favorite

American Origami
Andres Gonzalez

"The title, the design of folded papers revealing a deeper inside and insight, and the content, are perfectly matched and support this inquiry into America's deepest psychological plague of mass shootings. It not only offers the facts but the mystery as well."




Alejandro Cartagena's Favorite

Tonatiuh
Juan Brenner

"Gold, death and the uncertainty of our Latin American identities are some of the issues brought up in Juan Brenner’s new book. Uncomfortable and in your face, the images don’t shy away from pointing out how even after 500 years of the European invasion and massacre carried throughout Mexico and Guatemala, we still haven’t found peace."




Fred Cray's Favorite

https://www.photoeye.com/best-books-2019/details.cfm?FirstName=Fred&Lastname=Cray
The Pillar
Stephen Gill

"Stephen Gill’s The Pillar is a masterfully created project and book. It’s almost as if Gill didn’t make this and allowed the birds and seasons to speak for themselves from the pillar (essentially a podium). Regardless of who’s responsible, there are full spectrums of joy and terror, darkness and light, and the photographer’s presence and absence. Quiet, meditative, and powerful in chaotic times."




Janet Delaney's Favorite

April Dawn Alison
April Dawn Alison

"As a cisgender woman only a bit younger than Alice, I recognize her fashions and her stages of aging while also gaining a deep appreciation for the struggles inherent in being at odds with one’s gender assignment. The intimacy of these images, gathered together in book form, will keep the conversation alive and real as we all grapple with how to negotiate the construct of gender."



Tricia Gabriel's Favorite

https://www.photoeye.com/best-books-2019/details.cfm?FirstName=Tricia&Lastname=Gabriel
Deep Time
Lynn Alleva Lilley

"I keep paging through this book, front to back and back to front, immersed in the water, sand and sky, thinking about this arthropod’s life and evolution, time and change. The thoughtful collaboration between The Eriskay Connection and Lilley shows in the production, design and edit."





David Campany's Favorite

https://www.photoeye.com/best-books-2019/details.cfm?FirstName=David&Lastname=Campany
Decolonising the Camera
Mark Sealy

"In recent years, photo criticism has become quite bloated, with writings far longer than they need be, or awkwardly rhetorical in their desperate pursuit for the ear-catching concept. By contrast, Sealy's research, thinking and writing are fine examples of what used to be called practical criticism."
